Chamber of Shipping > Blog > News > April 22 – ElbBLUE

The 1,036-TEU container ship ElbBLUE, former “Wes Amelie”  has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 27% by operating on a blend of climate-neutral, synthetic natural gas (SNG) and conventional liquefied natural gas (LNG). In the case of the ElbBLUE, nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx) dropped by almost 87%, while emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx) and particulates were almost completely eliminated (~99%). These values were achieved in both the exclusive operation on LNG and on a blend of LNG and SNG. This was the world’s first conversion of a container ship to a multi-fuel operation with climate-friendly LNG.
