Towards cleaner maritime transport with LNG

Share:

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) helps to mitigate climate change by offering a cleaner alternative to conventional fuels used in maritime transport.

Emissions from ships consist of sulfur oxides (SOx), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Using LNG removes all SOx emissions and particles and reduces NOx emissions by up to 85 percent. LNG reduces CO2 emissions by at least 20 percent.

Cleaning the air

SOx emissions are harmful to people and the environment. Inhabitants living close to ports and the sea are especially vulnerable when it comes to sulphur emitted from ships.

From 1 January 2020, the global limit for sulphur in marine fuel is 0.50% m/m (mass by mass). This will result in an estimated annual reduction in overall SOx emissions by 77%, significantly improving air quality.

Regulations for air emissions are established worldwide by the International Maritime Organization, IMO, as well as national and regional authorities. LNG as a marine fuel meets all the current and forthcoming IMO and EU regulations.

Liquefied biogas – the sustainable maritime fuel

As a fuel, LNG is interchangeable with renewable LBG, as they both consist mainly of methane. This means that the two gases can be mixed. Using both LNG and LBG is one of the concrete actions that will take us towards a low-carbon society of the future.
