REASONS FOR LNG AS MARINE FUEL

The use of LNG allows for a significant reduction in sulphur oxide (SOX), nitrogen oxide (NOX) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, thus offering ship owners and operators a sustainable solution to meet existing and future emission standards. Other significant advantages are a very low safety risk and the possibility to combine LNG with other fuels in a dual-fuel engine. On both national and international level there are also several subsidisation programmes for LNG available.
