Decoding methane emissions from LNG-fueled ships 

About this event

In recent years, liquefied natural gas (LNG) has gained popularity as a fuel for the maritime industry, but “methane slip” from marine engines and fugitive emissions have raised climate concerns. The Fugitive and Unburned Methane Emissions from Ships (FUMES) project has produced the most comprehensive dataset of real-world methane emissions from LNG-fueled ships, using drones, helicopters, and on-board measurements.

FUMES found that real-world methane emissions from the most common LNG marine engine averaged 6.4%, whereas EU regulations assume 3.1% and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) assumes 3.5%. Panelists representing the project’s partners discussed these findings and their policy implications.
