EXCESS NOx ACCELERATES EUTROPHICATION, CAUSING OXYGEN DEPLETION THAT HARMS FISH AND SHELLFISH POPULATIONS.

Reducing SOx, NOx, CO2 and particulate emissions from ships ensures positive environmental outcomes now and into the future.

Air pollution from ships contributes to ground-level ozone (smog), acid rain and water deterioration. Reductions in air pollution from ships will help protect our natural and built world from the destructive effects of these emissions.

Lower emissions = Cleaner Environment - LNG MFI

Utilising LNG as a marine fuel will significantly reduce maritime oil spills. Global emissions reduction legislation from the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), slated to come into force in 2020, will work to reduce these impacts.

FUELLED BY GAS

Australia fuelled by gas - LNG MFI

LNG as a marine fuel is the first step towards helping Australia achieve energy independence.

Current reliance on imported fuels is concerning and an unsustainable model that undermines Australia's energy security.

Renewable technologies are only part of the solution to power the nation in the medium term. We envision a future for the LNG fuels industry where our marine, road, rail and mining industries are all fuelled by our indigenous gas.

PUBLIC HEALTH DEPENDS ON

CLEAN AIR

Public health depends on clean air - LNG MFI

Reducing emissions not only benefits the environment but has an important, positive impact on public health. According to studies in Europe, 50,000 premature deaths a year are linked to air pollution from ships.

A recent Chinese study found that at least 24,000 premature deaths per year in East Asia were related to air pollution from ships. These diseases were mostly caused by cancers, heart and lung diseases. These diseases not only impact health and social welfare, but also limit resources in an already strained public health system.

MAKE THE SWITCH.

CHANGE THE GAME

Make the switch. Change the game - LNG MFI

Reducing reliance on imported fuels is important and LNG can help us get there. Developing new fuel technologies to power industry is key.

LNG MFI’s future fuels initiative aims to provide support and funding to research teams looking to innovate future fuels technology. Partnering government and private enterprise teams in a collaborative knowledge share environment will accelerate research and development in the sector.
