Baleria considers gas the cleanest technology in the decarbonization of maritime transport

Balearia considers gas technology as a viable bet and is currently the cleanest, in a context where debates over energy dependence and consumption models have topped the list of urgency for countries with a horizon of decarbonization by 2050.

Javier Cervera, Head of the Transition Energetica di Balería, Remember that shipping companies have high energy consumption and this sector is not easily decarbonised as there is no technology with sufficient maturity. For this reason, he explains the path Baleria has chosen with gas-related projects since 2013: “Committed ourselves to striving to implement the cleanest technology possible at all times, beyond the demands of the community’s directives.” do”.

Thus, he states that although Natural gas is not the definitive solution, “It is a transition fuel in line with the goal of decarbonization and a better option than using classic oil derivatives.” Baleria defends natural gas technology “as it is the only possible way to be climate-demanding even more than what the EU demands”.

Since October last year, lShipping company has reduced its consumption due to increase in prices which jeopardized the viability of the company. “The decision was made out of responsibility; If we are not viable, we cannot be sustainable in any situation”, highlights Cervera. As a commitment to the future, the shipping company has nine dual-engine ships that are 100% biomethane and 25 Up to % of green hydrogen blends, ready to consume renewable gases that are neutral in CO2 emissions, are involved in several projects in Baleria.

About Biofuels, the person in charge of the shipping company’s energy transition, explains that many of them triple oil emissions “If you consider that the oil used for their manufacture is derived from deforestation of millions of hectares in poor continents”.
