LNG is available now, scalable today, safe and competitive. It provides a clear pathway to a zero-carbon future for shipping, starting today.
LNG improves human health by virtually elimating local emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) and cutting nitrogen oxide (NOx) by up to 95%. This is particular important in ports and heavily populated coastal areas.
It is fully compliant with all global Emission Control Areas (ECAs) and the IMO’s global sulphur cap, and future-proofs ship owners against more stringent local emissions regulations. The use of LNG cuts greenhouse gases (GHGs) by up to 28% on a tank-to-wake basis and it offers a potential decarbonisation pathway for shipping via liquefied biomethane, produced from biomass, or liquefied synthetic methane, produced from renewable electricity. LNG delivers strong returns on investment across different vessel and trade routes with rapid paybacks compared with traditional marine fuels. It is widely available with bunkering possible at most of the key ports and major oil bunkering hubs. LNG is operationally proven for use in the marine environment with well-established standards, guidelines and operating protocols and has an unblemished, 50-year safety record.
