In Singapore, Ken Energy Pte Ltd, a company that focuses on developing and implementing green energy solutions, has announced a significant collaboration and angel investment in Green COP Pte Ltd, a deep-tech start-up in sustainable fuel solutions.

At the Singapore Maritime Week 2024 Expo@SMW trade exhibition, Ken Energy and Green COP formalized their partnership by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

This agreement underscores their shared commitment to enhancing biobutanol utilization in maritime operations, focusing on operational feasibility, life cycle assessment, and carbon emissions reduction when used on current conventional vessels.

Ken Energy’s dedication to creating sustainable energy solutions, prioritizing emissions reduction, and environmental stewardship, aligns seamlessly with Green COP’s mission to revolutionize the biofuel industry.

Leveraging innovative technologies, Ken Energy aims to drive the transition towards a greener future. This strategic collaboration not only supports Ken Energy’s sustainability goals but also its aim of fostering local innovation and start-up entrepreneurship.

Green COP, a PIER71TM start-up alumni and top three winner of its Smart Port Challenge in 2022 specializes in producing sustainable biofuels from plant-based biowaste through a patented process.

Their biofuels, boasting a shelf life exceeding 24 months and reducing NOx emissions by 30 percent, offer a compelling solution for transitioning to sustainable marine fuels (SMF).

This strategic partnership underscores our commitment to sustainability. With our expertise in marine transportation logistics, we aim to accelerate the commercial adoption of biofuels by the transportation industries, said Desmond Chong, Managing Director of Ken Energy.

The collaboration between Ken Energy and Green COP represents a landmark moment in the journey towards a more sustainable future in the maritime and transportation sectors.

By combining expertise, innovation, and industry leadership, both companies are poised to drive positive change and make a lasting impact on global sustainability efforts.

We are heartened by the support of industry stewardship and knowledge. With our recent fundraising and partnerships with like-minded partners, we are on schedule to set up a pre-commercial production plant. We should witness the production of our first tonne of biofuels in the third quarter of 2024, said Dr Hanson Lee, CEO & Co-founder of Green COP.
