Maersk, along with BMW, H&M, Levi Strauss, Copenhagen University and others, formed a coalition to explore the use of "LEO" fuel for sustainable ocean shipping. LEO fuel is a blend of ethanol and lignin, a polymer found in plant cell walls. The project is currently in the lab development phase at Copenhagen University. The next phase will involve testing fuel on vessels, which may come as soon as Q2 2020 and the final phase will involve scaling up production of LEO fuel.
