Did you know that compared to conventional maritime fuels, LNG reduces sulphur oxides (SOx) emissions to near-zero? It also reduces nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particular matter by more than 90%. This is why we are calling for increased focus on LNG, bioLNG and eLNG to reduce emissions from maritime transport.
With the industry constantly working on reducing methane emissions along the supply chain, the switch to LNG from fuel oils would result in 20% emissions reductions. Blending with bioLNG and eLNG can push that number further. Although more will still be needed, these possible gains, along with the potential of gas infrastructure for renewable and low carbon gas, should be reflected in the policy framework.
