For the working group, the share of sustainable biofuels, liquid or gaseous, in heavy traffic should be at least 70 percent in 2050. Moreover, in maritime shipping, 40-50 percent of the emission cuts should be implemented by alternative fuels and by improving energy efficiency. In this regard, the document supports the objectives of a maritime LNG operational program recently published.
The proposal also takes into account that there are significant differences in the deployment of alternatives. For example, liquid biofuels, natural gas and biomethane are already available, but electric vehicles are still new on the market. In turn, the use of hydrogen as a fuel is still in a more distant future.
