NYK participates in emissions-cutting initiative

NYK joins environmental initiative to cut methane emissions

NYK Line has been a prominent collaborator in the Methane Abatement in Maritime Innovation project (MAMII), a project to minimise methane emissions in the maritime industry.

Safetytech Accelerator, a non-profit organisation founded by Lloyd’s Register Group, leads MAMII. MAMII has had 16 corporations and organisations engage since its inception in September 2022, including NYK.

The effort published a methane strategy landscape report including methane regulatory requirements, ‘Well to Tank’ and ‘Tank to Wake’ analyses, and cost benefit analysis in its first year.

NYK has positioned LNG fuel as one of the bridging options till the realisation of zero-emission ships in the future, and is thus encouraging the usage of LNG-fueled vessels.

Methane slip, or methane gas emissions from LNG into the environment, on the other hand, is a key concern for lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

According to NYK, the shipping line has been working actively to reduce the environmental impact of LNG-fuelled vessels, such as the introduction of shaft generators.

NYK’s participation in MAMII aims to aid in the decarbonisation of the maritime industry by engaging with partners that share similar goals and concerns.

Last month, NYK Line acquired a 25 per cent stake in PT. Patimban International Car Terminal (PICT), a car terminal operator based at the Indonesian Port of Patimban.
