IMO has provided interim guidance on the use of biofuels in relation to Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII)

The 80th session of the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 80), held in July 2023, has approved the interim guidance on the use of biofuels. 

This is in relation to assigning CO2 Emission Conversion Factor (Cf) under the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) regulations and when reporting fuel consumption to the IMO Data Collection System (IMO DCS). 

Flag States are encouraged to apply the interim guidance on use of biofuels under regulations 26, 27 and 28 of MARPOL Annex VI (DCS and CII) until a more comprehensive method is developed to calculate a fuel’s emission conversion factor reflecting its well-to-wake GHG emissions and removals based on the LCA Guidelines.
