Gas in transport

While electricity will dominate commercial and passenger vehicles by 2050, gases will play a key role in sectors like maritime transport and heavy-duty vehicles. According to the French Environment Agency (ADEME), Bio-NGV transport reduces CO2 emissions by 80%, and Nox emissions by 50% compared to diesel. 

Gas in maritime transport also offers a reduction of marine pollution. In fact, if global maritime transport completely switched to LNG, its GHG emissions would decrease by 15%. Reducing gas value chain emissions would see that number increase to 20% by 2030. Additionally, LNG would help bring maritime transport Sox to nearly zero, and Nox & PM would be reduced by >90%. Furthermore, blending just 20% bio-LNG would bring the emissions savings up to 34%. Molecules, like natural gas and increasing shares of biomethane, will play an important role in decarbonising the transport sector and continuing to get goods to their destinations. 

As Europe moves on important topics like heavy duty vehicles (HDVs), Eurogas has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with NGVA on Gmobility. See our recent joint paper on proposed CO2 regulation for more information.
