Project: Metrological support for LNG and LBG as transport fuel

Acronym 16ENG09 LNG III (Reference Number: 16ENG09)
Duration 01/06/2017 - 31/05/2020
Project Topic Use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) as transport fuels constitutes one of the pillars of the European clean fuel strategy. LNG and LBG are particularly suited to long-distance road and water transport, and the use of LNG enables the stringent pollutant emission limits of future Euro VI standards to be met more cost-efficiently compared to conventional fuels. However, the large-scale roll-out of LNG and LBG as transport fuels requires reliable determination of their amount, composition and physical properties.This project will use results from EMRP projects ENG03 LNG and ENG60 LNG2 to establish the necessary test facilities and validation methods that will enable this large-scale roll-out, taking an essential step towards the development of measurement traceability for custody transfer. The project will combine expertise from industry, instrument manufacturers and research institutes. These results will be implemented in various relevant written standards to enable and promote the use of LNG and LBG as cleaner transport fuels.
