SEA-LNG: LNG’s pathway to carbon-neutral shipping services ‘clear and well defined’

21 Dec 2021

Global multi-sector industry coalition SEA-LNG on Saturday (18 December) said BioLNG’s availability and development in Europe continues to increase at a promising rate, as key maritime players recognise LNG’s vital role in shipping’s energy transition.

It shared an example earlier in December where CMA CGM and SEA-LNG member Shell collaborated on a bioLNG bunkering trial at the Rotterdam Short Sea Terminals B.V. in the Netherlands.

Shell’s bioLNG alongside CMA CGM’s dual-fuel gas engine technology, has the capacity to lower emissions by up to 67% compared with VLSFO.

Further, the European Commission recently awarded €4.3M million ($4.8 million) in funding to the bioLNG bunkering project FirstBio2Shipping, developed by Titan LNG, Attero & Nordsol, further recognising LNG’s vital role in the decarbonisation of shipping.

Scandinavian Biogas has lately won SEK 154 million (USD 16.9 million) of Swedish government funding for a new bioLNG plant, and Fluxys LNG Zeebrugge terminal is now offering bioLNG liquefaction services in order to contribute to an emission free future.

“LNG’s pathway to carbon-neutral shipping services, through bioLNG and renewable synthetic LNG, is clear and well defined,” states SEA-LNG.

“BioLNG and synthetic LNG can be used interchangeably with existing LNG bulk infrastructure, supply chains, bunkering vessels, dual fuel engines, further reducing emissions.”
