EnergieAgentur.NRW and Gas- und Wärme-Institut Essen e.V. invite you to join the 2nd Workshop “LNG Roadmap - LNG as a driving force for cross-border cooperation within Europe” in Düsseldorf, Germany, on the 28th of May 2015.
The event highlights the ways of LNG (liquefied natural gas) use as a fuel gas for inland water shipping, coastal shipping, freight and heavy duty transportation, personal transportation and industrial applications and shows the European experience collected by pioneer LNG users.
Compared to diesel, LNG can offer many benefits: it can help the vessel and vehicle fleet operators reduce their fuel costs and cut their environmental footprint substantially. LNG use means no fine particulate matter and no sulphur dioxide, a significant reduction of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide and a cut by up to 90 % of nitrogen oxides in the exhaust gases. This makes LNG an interesting alternative to conventional marine fuels in the Baltic Sea and North Sea basin.
For the industrial users, especially those with specific requirements on the quality of the fuel supply (e.g. glass manufacturing, metal processing, power generation) LNG is a real option as a fuel.
The 2nd Workshop “LNG Roadmap” is the follow-up to the event which took place in Düsseldorf in July 2014 and brought together professionals and many distinguished speakers from Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Norway, Great Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Representatives of LNG traders, logistics and transportation businesses, engineering companies, plant and equipment manufacturers, energy consultancies, public utilities and authorities are invited to discuss the launch of the LNG as a fuel gas.
