Ports play a significant role in driving environmental stewardship for the first and last mile of any cargo’s journey at sea. Similarly, shipping lines have an equally vital role in driving decarbonisation of the shipping ecosystem. With a common purpose for responsible maritime practices, PSA Corporation Ltd (PSA) and Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd (ONE) have deepened their collaboration on sustainability initiatives by working together to recover and recycle refrigerant gas from refrigerated containers (reefers).

PSA is the first in Southeast Asia to commence trials on the use of reclaimed refrigerant gas for reefers, with ONE being the first shipping line to successfully complete the trials using their reefers with PSA. Recycling refrigerant gas effectively saves about 4,000kg of carbon emissions1 per reefer, which is equivalent to the emissions from driving a normal internal combustion engine car for close to a year.
