A Canadian cargo transport company has become the country’s marine business to use renewable natural gas (RNG)  for its fleet.

Seaspan Ferries, in partnership with FortisBC, will use RNG for its LNG-powered marine fleet vessels. By using RNG, Seaspan estimates its emissions can be reduced by 85 per cent compared to diesel fuels.

FortisBC’s RNG program was first developed in 2011. It has been working to increase the supply of RNG which is harvested from biogases. It is compatible with existing natural gas infrastructure.
