New Report Says Reduce Energy Costs and Emissions by Using Natural Gas as a Marine Fuel

A new report released today by the Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance (CNGVA) says major economic benefits and emissions reductions can occur by expanding the use of natural gas as a marine fuel on Canada’s Great Lakes and East Coast.

Liquefied Natural Gas: A Marine Fuel for Canada’s Great Lakes and East Coast is a summary report of an in-depth study undertaken in partnership with Transport Canada and with the support of a broad cross section of industry, government and other stakeholders.  The report concludes that using liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) as a marine fuel will provide significant economic benefits to the owners and operators of vessels, especially coastal vessels.  As well, the report notes that natural gas is a clean energy option that offers a means of reducing emissions to meet current and pending environmental regulations.
