From ships to trucks, from rails to industries, LNG is gaining momentum around the world with initiatives aiming at developing the supply chain of liquefied natural gas as bunker and road fuel. The progress in maritime and automotive engine design technologies as well as in shipbuilding and cryogenics are fostering the growth of LNG as fuel by ship owners and truck fleet operators in Europe, North America and East Asia. Energy security of supply and climate needs are driving in this direction too.
The 3rd ConferenzaGNL gathered representatives from institutions, associations, companies and experts involved in the development of LNG use for transport in the Euro-Mediterranean Area for enhancing the debate and knowledge sharing among them. The Conference was a great occasion to also learn about the future developments of the LNG business in the Adriatic-Ionian macro Region addressed by the Italian Government as the first low sulphur area in the Mediterranean Sea and entering into force by 2018 when the agreement on the adoption of a maximum 0.1% sulphur content limit in marine fuels will be signed between States bordening these Seas.
For this occasion we also hosted the 1st FieraGNL, a two-days exhibition addressed to final LNG users both in maritime/land transport (fleet and ship owners), and industrial sector.
