2020. The main objective of this study is to make a first approach to replacing bunker fuels used in the Paraguay – Paraná Waterway with more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy alternatives. For this, replacement options such as natural gas, electricity or hydrogen were evaluated. However, considering the feasibility and current trends, the analysis of the potential substitution by natural gas has been deepened. Considering the technologies currently available, the study provides some evidence that natural gas would be the most appropriate fuel in the short term to replace the marine fuels that are currently used on the Waterway.
