Report Provides Clues on How to Cut Emissions

A recent Joint Research Centre (JRC) report finds that fuels like liquefied natural gas (LNG) and methanol are the most promising alternatives to drive decarbonisation of the shipping sector and ultimately contribute to the fight against climate change. The report covers different alternative fuels, engine types and the introduction of alternative fuels. It reviews low sulphur grade diesel fuels, biofuels, traditional fuels, gaseous fuels and battery operated propulsion, Fischer-Tropsch (FT) or synthetic diesel, pyrolysis oil, hydrogen in combination with fuel cells, solar power and wind energy as potential alternatives.
