TotalEnergies: The Coalition for the Vitality of the Future Launches the Feasibility Research of Its First Main Venture and Welcomes Three New Members

Launched in late 2019, the Coalition for the Vitality of the Future goals at accelerating the event of future energies and applied sciences to maintain new inexperienced mobility fashions and cut back the impression of transport and logistics on local weather change.


Launch of the feasibility research of the primary French mission of BioLNG manufacturing inside a big maritime port


On the event of its second CEO assembly of 2021, the Coalition for the Vitality of the Future publicizes the launch of the feasibility research of the primary French mission of BioLNG manufacturing inside a big maritime port. Developed by three of its members, this mission will allow to advance the manufacturing and use of BioLNG for maritime transportation.


Made doable by the Coalition’s work, this mission will enable the transformation of family waste from the Métropole Aix-Marseille-Provence into liquefied biomethane (BioLNG) throughout the Port of Marseille Fos. This BioLNG will then be used to advance inexperienced mobility from the port, notably for the CMA CGM Group’s LNG-powered vessels.


This main mission represents a virtuous instance of round economic system and can profit from present infrastructures on the Port of Marseille Fos: EveRé’s (a family waste therapy middle) methanation items, Elengy’s (a subsidiary of ENGIE) LNG terminals for stocking and supply, TotalEnergies’ bunkering ship and CMA CGM’s LNG vessels.
