Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. will unveil by 2015 a natural-gas-powered engine that emits 30% less carbon dioxide than conventional models.

The machinery manufacturer has improved existing technology to develop a combustion engine that efficiently burns high-pressure gas through direct injection reports the Wall Street Journal from the 26, November 2012 edition of Nikkei.

The engine will be marketed to customers after emissions levels and fuel economy are tested through a trial run that starts in late 2013 at Mitsubishi Heavy's Kobe shipyard. It is intended for liquefied-natural-gas carriers, large tankers and containerships.
