First BioLNG production project at a French port begins feasibility study

July 11, 2021 |

In France, operator of a household waste treatment plant EveRé, shipping company CMA CGM Group, Elengy, a subsidiary of Engie, and TotalEnergies, a global multi-energy company, joined forces to study the feasibility of creating France’s first production unit for liquefied biomethane, a low-carbon alternative fuel dedicated to energy transition in the shipping industry.

Produced by converting the biodegradable part of household waste from the Marseille Provence region, BioLNG would allow for the decarbonization of shipping services departing from the Grand Port Maritime in Marseille and would be used primarily for the CMA CGM Group’s LNG-powered vessels.

BioLNG to become a renewable energy source to fuel the CMA CGM Group’s ships, permitting at least a 67% greenhouse gas emissions reduction. This is a project led by the Coalition for the Energy of the Future, which aims to step up the pace of development of future energy sources and technologies.
