Discussions which centred around the adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel in Europe took place at Piraeus Port Authority on Friday as part of the European co-funded Poseidon Med II project.
The first session saw the measurement of shipping emissions in ports where representatives presented the latest results from emission measurements in Piraeus and Patras ports in 2017.
Results found nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulphur oxide (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) pollution to be at a peak level during the manoeuvring and movement of passenger ships at arrival/departure time.
LNG was the most promising solution towards reducing emissions, representatives agree.
A presentation of an unmanned aerial vehicle system for the collection of valid emissions data from ships was also conducted in the meeting.
The last session saw EcoPorts and Hellenic Ornithological Society representatives briefing delegates on the necessary steps towards the deployment of LNG as a marine fuel for the Eastern Mediterranean region.
The Poseidon Med II project introduces a practical roadmap to promote the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel for the East Mediterranean marine transportation sector.
It is co-funded by the European Union, involving three countries Greece, Italy and Cyprus, six European ports (Piraeus, Patras, Lemesos, Venice, Heraklion, Igoumenitsa) as well as the Revithoussa LNG terminal.
