Alfa Laval and WinGD cut methane slip by 50 per cent

With IMO targeting a 50 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050, liquefied natural gas (LNG) is becoming a natural choice for shipowners in the transition to carbon-neutral fuels. Methane slip regulations are a possibility on the horizon, but Alfa Laval and global Swiss engine developer WinGD have already cooperated on a...
