Methane Slip From LNG-Fuelled Ships Can Be Halved

Most Natural Gas engines today are retrofits or adaptions from diesel engines. This means that they are not optimized to run on Natural Gas as a fuel but on something else. No wonder there is a loss in the system before and during combustion. But this is a temporary issue that will go away in time. New, pure breed Natural Gas engines are being developed and some of them have already hit the market. Those engines are no adaptions but they have been built for gas all along. Their methane slip is tiny. Oh, and operators don’t like to lose fuel – that’s what methane slip really is.
