Identification

This solution reliquefies natural gas boil-off in LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) vessels in order to significantly reduce greenhouse emissions during transport.

In the maritime industry, LNG carriers transport LNG from methane-producing countries to consumer countries over very long distances. This natural gas, which is cold in its liquid state, tends to reheat and in part evaporates during transport. This solution reliquefies the evaporated natural gas and keeps it in the container in liquid form. The same technology is used for liquid Bio-methane production or cooling of High temperature Supra-conductive Cable for electricity transportation.

Label Date February 2020
From France
Maturity stage Small scale commercialization
Looking For Network, New clients, Visibility.
