Switching to liquified natural gas is a costly and ineffective way of reducing the shipping industry’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study commissioned by environmental campaign group Transport & Environment.

That would leave the EU far from the global aim struck by the International Maritime Organization in April to halve shipping emissions by 2050.
