Study Examines ‘Well-to-Hull’ Emissions of ECA Fuel Alternatives

08-Sep-2014

A study released this summer has concluded that using natural gas as a marine propulsion fuel has the upper hand when compared to conventional fuels not just in improving air quality, but in overall greenhouse gas (GHG) impact as well.

The study, commissioned by the US Department of Transportation Maritime Administration (MARAD), evaluated total fuel cycle emissions, or "well-to-hull" emissions for vessel operations for natural gas versus conventional marine fuels. (Bunker World) Read More...
