Kristjan Loftsson is the chief executive of Icelandic whaling company Hvalur. He recently told the UK's Sunday Times that his whaling vessels are fueled by whale oil from endangered fin whales.

Loftsson claims that his biofuel, a combination of 20 percent whale oil and 80 percent diesel, is the world's greenest.

Kristján Loftsson, chief executive at the Icelandic whaling company Hvalur, calls his mixture of fin whale oil a “green biofuel� and claims it to be a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional sources of fuel.

Loftsson claims that this process is additionally friendly to the environment as the fat from the fin whale carcasses is rendered into oil using renewable geothermal heat sourced from Iceland’s volcanic vents. According to the Times, Loftsson calls this the world’s “greenest� marine biofuel.

With only 110,000 fin whales left worldwide and whalers such as Loftsson continuing this practice in outrageously unsustainable ways, it begs the question: Is the IWC really doing enough to enforce such regulations?
