Count On MOL.

Reduction of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) per TEU-Mile

CO2 is a cause of global warming. MOL is working to reduce CO2 emissions by improving vessel fuel efficiency through the use of Propeller Boss Cap Fins (PBCFs), antifouling ship bottom paints, wind resistance-reducing ship design, and ECO SAILING. MOL has established two separate CO2 emissions reduction targets, one for the midterm and one for each fiscal year. More details about MOL's Environmental Vision 2030 plan, established in April 2017, can be found here on pages 9,10, and 11.

MOL Target:

New:

  1. Reduce CO2 emissions by 25% per unit load for FY2030 vs. FY2014 and
  2. Reduce by 1% per unit load each fiscal year.

Historical:

  1. Reduce CO2 emissions by 10% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2009 and
  2. Reduce by 1% per unit load each fiscal year.

MOL Results:

New:

  1. Reduced CO2 emissions by 17.6% per unit load for FY2016 vs. FY2014.
  2. Reduced CO2 emissions by 9.6% per unit load for FY2016 vs FY2015.

Historical:

  1. Reduced CO2 emissions by 40% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2009.
  2. Reduced CO2 emissions by 8.8% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2014.
  • Reduced CO2 emissions by 8.5% per unit load for FY2014 vs. FY2013
  • Reduced CO2 emissions by 4.5% per unit load for FY2013 vs. FY2012.
  • Reduced CO2 emissions by 10.4% per unit load for FY2012 vs. FY2011.
  • Reduced CO2 emissions by 2.1% per unit load for FY2011 vs. FY2010.

Reduction of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx)

NOx is generated when nitrogen contained in fuel oil and air binds with oxygen in the air at high temperatures when fuel burns in the engine. MOL is reducing emissions by controlling the combustion temperature in the engine and adopting electronically controlled engines.  MOL has established two separate NOx emissions reduction targets, one for the midterm and one for each fiscal year.

MOL Target:

New:

  1. Reduce NOx emissions per unit load by 25% for FY2030 vs. FY2014.
  2. Reduce by 1% per unit load each fiscal year.

Historical:

  1. Reduce NOx emissions per unit load by 10% for FY2015 vs. FY2009 and
  2. Reduce by 1% per unit load each fiscal year.

MOL Results:

New:

  1. Reduced NOx emissions per unit load by 17.7% for FY2016 vs. FY2014.
  2. Reduced NOx emissions per unit load by 9.7% for FY2016 vs. FY2015.

Historical:

  1. Reduced NOx emissions by 40% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2009.
  2. Reduced NOx emissions by 8.8% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2014.
  • Reduced NOx emissions by 8.5% per unit load for FY2014 vs. FY2013.
  • Reduced NOx emissions by 4.5% per unit load for FY2013 vs. FY2012.
  • Reduced NOx emissions by 10.4% per unit load for FY2012 vs. FY2011.
  • Reduced NOx emissions by 2.1% per unit load for FY2011 vs. FY2010.

Reduction of Sulfur Oxide (SOx) 

SOx is generated by burning fuel oil containing sulfur. MOL has set a standard for the sulfur content in the fuel it procures that is stricter than the international treaty governing sulfur content in fuel oil. MOL has established two separate SOx emissions reduction targets, one for the midterm and for each fiscal year.

MOL Target:

New:

  1. Reduce SOx emissions by 25% per unit load for FY2030 vs. FY2014 and
  2. Reduce by 1% per unit load each fiscal year.

Historical:

  1. Reduce SOx emissions by 10% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2009 and
  2. Reduce by 1% per unit load each fiscal year.

MOL Result:

New:

  1. Reduced SOx emissions by 10.4% per unit load for FY2016 vs. FY2014.
  2. Reduced SOx emissions by 6.4% per unit load for FY2016 vs. FY2015.

Historical:

  1. Reduced SOx emissions by 35% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2009 and
  2. Reduced SOx emissions by 4.5% per unit load for FY2015 vs. FY2014.
  • Reduced SOx emissions by 4.1%  per unit load for FY2014 vs. FY2013.
  • Reduced SOx remissions by 6.0% per unit load for FY2013 vs. FY2012.
  • Reduced SOx emissions by 11.3% per unit load for FY2012 vs. FY2011.
  • SOx emissions increased by 2.6% per unit load for FY2011 vs. FY2010.
