Who we are
We have 40 members from some 15 countries worldwide, including:
- Gas engine manufacturers
- Component suppliers to the gas engine industry
- R & D organizations, consultants and universities
- Oil and gas companies
- Classification societies
What we do
We deal with all aspects of gas engine technology by discussing and producing various information documents and statements of interest both to our industry and the public in general, such as the following:
- Exhaust emission issues related to gas engines
- Gas engine performance definitions
- Gas quality issues
- Application and safety issues
Our current projects and activities
- Gas quality discussions related to the use of LNG, possible hydrogen-enrichment of natural gas and the need for improved knocking-stability definitions of fuel gases.
- Input to the ongoing work within IMO with the “International Gas Fuel Code”.
- About greenhouse gas emissions from gas engines.
- Information document about the use of gas engines in the marine industry.
Various position papers on several gas engine topics, such as the following:
- Guideline on Hydrogen in Stationary 4-Stroke Gas Engines for Power Generation [PDF] (Nov 2021)
- Position Paper Gas Engine Aftertreatment Systems [PDF] (Aug 2017)
- Impact of Gas Quality on Gas Engine Performance [PDF] (July 2015)
- Guideline on methane and formaldehyde emissions of gas engines [PDF] (April 2014)
- Information concerning the application of gas engines in the marine industry [PDF] (December 2013)
- Transient response behavior of gas engines. [PDF] (April 2011)
- About the influence of ambient conditions on the performance of gas engines. [PDF] (March 2009)
