LPG to be Used as a Marine Fuel in the Shipping Industry
Moreover, the World LPG Association (WLPGA) made clear that LPG will play a major role towards IMO's 2050 regulation, which calls for greenhouse gas emissions' reducation by at least 50% until 2050 in comparison with 2008.
'With the marine industry under pressure to take measures to reduce emissions to comply with IMO 2020, LPG can make a significant inroads into the marine fuel market. To achieve that, LPG propulsion, starting with LPG carrier sector, needs to move beyond a niche fuel option, to gain the acceptance in the wider shipping sector that it deserves.' WLPGA noted.
