PROJECT SUMMARY

Environmental pressure in port areas and in urban areas close to ports is high owing to emissions from ships, port machinery and transport to/from the port areas. LNG is proposed as a low-carbon clean fuel for marine transport in port areas. The boost of LNG for marine and terrestrial propulsion may be a key to enhance the sustainability of port areas, protecting health of population and cultural heritage. However, distribution networks and port infrastructures for the bunkering of LNG-powered ships requires technologies and solutions assuring a high level of safety in touristic areas of the Adriatic and Ionian sea, avoiding trade-offs among environment protection and safety of passengers and personnel. The overall objective of the SUPER-LNG PLUS project is to increase the level of safety, environmental quality and sustainability of LNG maritime transportation in the Adriatic and Ionian seas, while the goals are to promote the SUPER-LNG project outcomes and results to national/regional/ level and also to promote the use of project outcomes to potential beneficiaries.
