ADNOC Distribution has announced its UAE heavy vehicle fleet, supplying main fuels, will be powered by B20 biofuel, targeting a 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from the fleet.

The company’s fleet plays a crucial role in supplying fuels and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to corporate customers. This initiative is a step forward in ADNOC Distribution’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and aligns with ADNOC Group’s efforts to deliver on its accelerated decarbonization plan.

“We are delivering on our commitment to using biofuel to power our fleet and help reduce our carbon intensity by 25 percent by 2030. By incorporating B20 biofuel into our operations, ADNOC Distribution is taking a vital step toward securing a more sustainable future. This initiative underscores ADNOC Distribution’s dedication to a future-focused strategy and supports the UAE’s Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiatives.”

The company said that “produced from waste cooking oil, the biofuel blending process takes place at a state-of-the-art production facility located in Madinat Zayed, Abu Dhabi.” Through this initiative, which reduces carbon emissions associated with transportation, ADNOC Distribution underscores its commitment to take tangible steps that enable sustainable mobility.

According to the statement, “As a testament to ADNOC Distribution’s commitment to sustainability, the company is actively working on the development of innovative sustainable mobility solutions, including electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. The company currently operates 38 EV charging points at service stations across the UAE.”

Further, ADNOC Distribution has agreed with Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) to work together to establish a mobility joint venture, E2GO, to build and operate electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure in Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE.
