Mitsui and Mitsubishi are joining forces with Sempra Infrastructure to market LNG produced through a process with 90 percent lower carbon dioxide emissions, reports Offshore Technology.

This greener LNG production partnership aims to commence production around 2029 at Sempra’s Cameron LNG site, with a production capacity of 6.75 million tons per annum.

Besides the Japanese trading giants, the partnership is set to include other companies. The process will help in transitioning from conventional gas turbines to electric motors powered by renewable energy, predominantly solar power.

In conjunction with carbon capture technology, this method is expected to reduce emissions from production by 80–90 percent, significantly lowering the fuel’s life cycle carbon footprint, excluding combustion. Read more.
