gmec: Panel 3 - Green propulsion - Is LNG the answer? what are other options?
LNG has been presented as a panacea for clean shipping. But despite projects at ports around the world, infrastructure remains a major issue. Availability is not keeping up with demand, and many practical considerations for on-board storage are not yet well-understood. On top of this, alternatives like methanol, once-considered niche, are moving to the fore, while interest in renewables and batteries grows. Will cleaner bunkering remain a one-horse-race, or are we headed for a multi-fuel future?
