Alfa Laval targets methane slip with new solution

Alfa Laval has added a new solution to its Pure Thinking portfolio, targeting methane slip from LNG engines. The new Alfa Laval PureCool system targets the small percentage of unburned methane that escapes through the engine when LNG is used as fuel. Although no regulations currently exist for it, there is growing awareness of methane...

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...

MOL supports synthetic methane for zero-emission shipping

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has joined the Carbon Capture & Reuse (CCR) Study Group* and launched the “Cross-industrial Working Group Related to Zero Emission Alternative Ship Fuels.” The working group aims to reduce CO2 emissions in international shipping’s value chains by using synthetic methane (methanation fuel) as an alternative to fossil fuels. Synthetic methane is...
