LNG as a clean bunkering fuel for a green mobility: ENGIE

10 Jan 2017 – The regulations regarding international shipping’s environmental impacts are tightening. In October 2016, the Board of the International Maritime Organisation has decided to reduce from 3.5% to 0.5% the sulfur content of the bunker (Heavy Fuel Oil) on a worldwide basis as of 2020.

LNG has been identified as a marine fuel of choice as it nearly eliminates sulfur emissions and significantly reduces the NOx and CO2 emissions.

Implementing LNG as marine fuel comes with its own challenges and opportunities for the Marine sector. Denis Bonhomme, SVP Business Development at ENGIE, shared with us at this committee meeting the promising perspectives for LNG as a clean substitution fuel, illustrating the case with a few examples of actual developments.
