CUTTING EMISSIONS AND POLLUTION IN MARITIME TRANSPORT
Eurogas key policy recommendations
The EU should increase focus on promoting LNG, bioLNG and eLNG to reduce emissions from maritime transport.
Eurogas believes the following elements are crucial to boosting the use of these fuels:
– All EU policies should ensure a level playing field and assess solutions objectively along the complete value chain, including refuelling and distribution infrastructure.
– The EU framework needs to recognise the Well-toWake emissions, to fully account for the contribution of fuels, as well as local emissions, performances of fuels, and the time needed for their deployment.
– An economically efficient and well-planned approach that maximizes the value of existing assets to incorporate increasing shares of renewable and low carbon gases.
