Το καύσιμο LNG στη σύγχρονη ναυτιλία οικονομικές και περιβαλλοντικές επιδράσεις και το περιβαλλοντικό αποτύπωμα της χρήσης του
Ιn the current thesis the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in maritime transportation is examined. The environmental performance of ships using LNG is significantly higher than the relevant performance of LNG-fueled ships. NOx emissions are 80-85% lower, while SOx emissions are near zero and emissions of particulate matter are very low. The missions of CO2 produced by the combustion of natural gas are 20-30% lower. Moreover, the economic benefit arising from the substitution of conventional maritime fuels by LNG is another important favorable element. As a result, the construction of ships fueled by LNG and the use of dual-fuel engines in maritime transportation is becoming a new trend.
