A variety of initiatives aim to make shipping more sustainable
LNG and LBG are the perfect partners for this development
Jan Schubert, shipping expert at LIQUIND Marine, describes to listeners of FluxFM radio station the various options for reducing emissions in shipping. Central to the interview are plans by the company Wallenius Marine, together with partner companies from Scandinavia, to develop a car transporter that uses wind power as a main drive. Plans to reduce emissions through the use of renewable energies go hand in hand with the establishment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel for maritime applications. LNG represents the perfect bridging technology for the development of a variety of alternative propulsion technologies (including hydrogen, batteries or ammonia), helping the technologies to reach market maturity in the coming decades. In the meantime, LNG and Liquefied Biogas (LBG) produced from bio-methane already offer significant potential for reducing emissions in shipping, especially sulfur, soot, nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxide.
