Methane Abatement in Maritime Innovation Initiative

A ground-breaking collaboration led by Safetytech Accelerator that unites industry leaders, tech innovators, and maritime stakeholders, all working together to advance technologies that monitor, measure and mitigate methane emissions in the maritime sector.

The Challenge

Shipping is utilising Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as a fuel for greener operations on the road to carbon neutrality. LNG is estimated to emit up to 23% less C02 than other marine fuels and is sulphur-free.

However, the environmental benefits of using LNG are undermined by methane slip and leakage into the atmosphere, where it has a significant warming effect. Technology exists to both measure and abate the emissions of methane from LNG-fuelled ships but it needs to be adapted and proven in maritime operations.

Our goal: significantly reduce methane emissions from LNG use as a marine fuel

Advancing Methane Abatement in Maritime – Launch of MAMII’s First Public Report

Join us for an exclusive webinar on July 9th at 2pm BST, where we unveil the first public report from the Methane Abatement in Maritime Innovation Initiative (MAMII), led by Safetytech Accelerator.

This comprehensive report shares key learnings and actionable recommendations to accelerate the adoption of technologies that reduce or eliminate methane emissions in the maritime sector, paving the way for a more sustainable future.

Decarbonisation is the most important challenge for the maritime industry to reach net zero by 2050. Methane is 28 times more potent than CO2 over a 100 year period.

Addressing methane
emissions is vital if LNG is to be used as a marine fuel.

Currently, the industry lacks the information and tools it needs to accurately measure the amount of methane released by LNG-fuelled ships.

Existing technologies can
measure and abate methane emissions from ships, but need more maritime validation
for broader use.

“As the world’s third-largest LNG player, we are delighted to be joining the MAMII initiative and contributing our expertise in reducing the emissions all along the gas value chain. It is key for TotalEnergies to further improve the environmental benefits of LNG as a marine fuel, already a major decarbonisation lever for the maritime industry.”

Jerome Cousin, SVP Shipping at TotalEnergies
