Gas in transport
In both the DNV’s and the European Commission’s scenario, demand for gases in transport will increase from 2% in 2017 to 18% by 2050. Most commercial and passenger vehicles will go electric by 2050, while gases take the lead in maritime transport, aviation and heavy-duty vehicles. The French Environment Agency (ADEME) said that bio-NGV transport reduces CO2 emissions by 80%, and NOx emissions by 50% compared to diesel.
Consider maritime transport. Here gas offers not only GHG emissions reductions, but also a reduction of marine pollution. In fact, if global maritime transport completely switched to LNG, GHG emissions would decrease by 15%, SOx to near zero, and NOx & PM would be reduced by more than 90%. Reducing gas value chain emissions would see that number increase to 20% by 2030. Blending with just 20% of bio-LNG would bring the emissions savings up to 34%.
