CMA CGM boosting use of biomethane in shipping for clients

May 20, 2021 |

In France, CMA CGM has been increasing the share of biomethane in the CLEANER ENERGY LNG solution, available since November 2020, leading to a reduction in CO2 emissions of 25% on a well-to-wake basis, compared to the previous 15% reduction. As things stand, liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the best solution currently available for reducing shipping’s carbon footprint and preserving air quality. By 2024, 44 of its vessels will be LNG-powered. 

On April 8, 2021, the company’s chairman & CEO announced in his address to the United Nations Global Compact the support of the production of 12,000 tons of biomethane (equivalent to one-year’s consumption of two 1,400-TEU vessels).
