MetamorFos: a liquefaction project for household waste biogas coming from the Marseilles Provence metropolis.

25 August 2022

With LNG, an immediately available lever for decarbonisation, Elengy is contributing to the energy transition of energy suppliers and the entire transport sector. We are developing our services by investing in bio-LNG processes. We are striving to reduce the environment footprint of different industry stakeholders by are preparing the transition to a zero carbon offering by 2050. 

MetamorFos: striving for a cleaner maritime transport

Produced by transforming biodegradable household waste in the Marseilles Provence area, Bio-LNG will enable maritime transport from the Grand Port Maritime at Marseilles to be decarbonised and will be used in particular for liquefied natural gas-propelled vessels belonging to the CMA CGM Group.

The use of biomethane produced from the city’s household waste will enable local atmospheric pollution to be reduced (NOx, SOx, and fine particles), the quality of air to be improved and will contribute to reducing the impact of carbon favouring the energy transition of maritime transport.

LNG, a maritime fuel to accelerate the move from heavy mobility to carbon neutrality

LNG represents a new impetus to meet the challenges of climate change, the necessity to offer the maritime community viable and economic solutions and alternatives to institutions so that they can build a more resilient maritime industry. Today LNG, followed by renewable or low-carbon methane, are the main viable and progressive solutions for the maritime industry. Today LNG provides ships with the progressive and manageable decarbonisation of their business. It is perfectly in line with the course set by European regulations and the IMO objectives by reducing CO2, sulphur, nitrogen oxide and particle emissions.  Choosing LNG allows for easy adjustment to the decarbonised fuels of tomorrow: biofuels and synthetic fuels such as e-methane, e-ammonia or e-methanol.
