Summary: This report is part of the project "Developing the programme of measures for the Estonian marine area in compliance with the requirements of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive, including feasibility study on using LNG as an alternative ship fuel to reduce pollution". This report presents and assesses the available information regarding pollutant emission factors (NOx, particulate matter, organic compounds) for ships using Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) as fuel. This evaluation, based on a literature review, will support the selection of scenarios for using LNG along with the information from the feasibility study performed within the project.
