The increasing global carbon intensity has been considered as the most challenging issue these years, and maritime shipping contributes nearly 3% of annual carbon-dioxide emissions. LNG, as a transitional marine fuel, has been considered to be used in the shipping business given the economic and technologic feasibility compare to the other alternative fuels. HFM has been devoted to helping shipping customers on carbon-neutralization.
Unlike diesel fuel or other MGO, LNG is carried as a boiling liquid, and is a cryogenic liquid at temperatures of about -162°C (-259°F). In liquid form, natural gas occupies 600 times less volume that in a gaseous state, making it easier to transport over long distances and enabling a large storage capacity to be achieved in a relatively small space.
