UNECE's ADN Safety Committee (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Inland Waterways has adopted regulations for the transport of LNG in tank vessels at its 12th session in Geneva.

The regulations will enter into force after a written notification procedure on the 1 January 2015.

The new regulations ensure a high level of safety for the transport of large quantities of LNG and provide a basis for investments into LNG tank vessels. The adoption opens the way to bring LNG cost-effectively from the seaports to the customers (fuel & energy) in major industrial areas along the inland waterways. This facilitates a wide-scale development of LNG as fuel and as energy source.

Inland waterway transport has an excellent energy and carbon record. On new ships, air emissions such as NOx and PM are also radically decreased. The same trend is expected soon for existing vessels.
