Innovative solutions are needed to reach the ambitious climate neutrality and emission reduction goals established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the European Commission (COM) at the international and European levels.
Massive energy consumption reductions are foreseen, but cleaner low-carbon energies will also play an essential role in this transition.
Regarding maritime transport, liquefied natural gas (LNG) solutions can enable this green future if the methane slip challenge is addressed.
The GREEN RAY project proposes three innovative technologies for LNG engines that can be installed on new and existing ships and will drastically reduce the methane slip, contributing to climate action and a healthier society.
