transport & environment: Methane at Sea - Finding the Invisible Climate Killer


Methane at Sea: Finding the Invisible Climate Killer

Transport and Environment (T&e) is an European umbrella for non-governmental organisations working in the field of transport and the environment, promoting sustainable transport in Europe; which means an approach to transport that is environmentally responsible, economically sound and socially just.

This T&E’s investigation into so-called ‘green’ liquid natural gas (LNG) ships uncovers significant amounts of invisible methane being released into the atmosphere.

We produced for T&E this documentary which is part of the investigation and was published by other media like Bloomberg

These images show heat and gas emissions from the exhaust stack of ship engines. The bright light near the exhaust stack indicates a heat source. As the plume moves away from the heated exhaust stack, we are able to observe uncombusted hydrocarbon emissions.
