CMA CGM and ENGIE a strategic and artificial cooperation to decarbonize shipping
The CMA CGM Group, a world leader in shipping and logistics, and ENGIE, global player in the field of renewables and energy results, have committed to working together to advance the energy transition by backing the artificial-scale product and distribution of synthetic methane and BioLNG.
Nurture the development of a decarbonized energy offer for the shipping sector
CMA CGM and ENGIE have decided to establish a long- term strategic and artificial cooperation concentrated on the product of decarbonized energies. The cooperation has the ambition to support the development of a synthetic methane product and distribution assiduity that can be used by the shipping sector.
An original design to produce thawed biomethane (BioLNG) for shipping has formerly been launched by both groups at the Port of Marseille, in cooperation with Métropole Aix-Marseille-Provence and TotalEnergies.
ENGIE is leading farther synthetic methane product artificial systems in which CMA CGM will have the possibility to invest, including by means ofmulti-year purchase commitments. These systems will harness colorful technologies, similar as pyro-gasification or methanation using green hydrogen and captured CO2.
A cooperation enabling the pooling of moxie and R&D capabilities
The CMA CGM Group and ENGIE are investing in exploration and development with their artificial mates in order to find the energy sources of the future to enable the decarbonization of the shipping sector.
In order to insure the continuity of the assiduity, the cooperation between CMA CGM and ENGIE will grease the sharing of both groups’ knowledge and R&D work, most specially in crucial technologies similar as carbon prisoner and green hydrogen product.
The cooperation also covers the analysis of unborn regulations, as well as sweats to raise mindfulness of the benefits of BioLNG and synthetic methane for the decarbonization of the shipping assiduity.
Anon-fossil energy energy source and a substantial commitment to the energy transition in shipping Thawed natural gas (LNG) can reduce moment sulfur oxide emigrations by 99, fine flyspeck emigrations by 91 and nitrogen oxide emigrations by 92. The CMA CGM Group presently accounts for 20 “e-methane ready” vessels equipped with binary- energy machines and running on LNG and will have 44 “e-methane” vessels by time- end 2024.
This groundbreaking decision helped to cut the CMA CGM Group’s overall carbon emigrations by 4 in 2020, following on from a 6 reduction in 2019. The Group has lowered its carbon emigrations per vessel-kilometer by 49 since 2008.
The binary- energy gas- power technology developed by CMA CGM and presently using LNG is formerly able of using BioLNG and synthetic methane. In this environment, CMA CGM and ENGIE are joining forces to support the product and distribution assiduity. Biomethane can reduce hothouse gas emigrations by 67 compared to VLSFO ( Veritably Low Sulfur Fuel Oil) on a well-to-wake base ( entire value chain). Synthetic methane, meanwhile, will exclude the vast maturity of hothouse gas emigrations.
Two French groups committed to supporting sustainable mobility through the Coalition for the energy of the unborn
In addition, the CMA CGM Group and ENGIE have been working together for several months as part of the Coalition for the energy of the unborn launched in late 2019 at the Assises de l’Économie de la Mer conference by Rodolphe Saadé and supported by French President Emmanuel Macron. They continue to unite within the Coalition to drive the development of energy sources and technologies of the future, to support new models of sustainable mobility and reduce the shipping and logistics assiduity’s climate impact.
