"This bulbous, 90-foot-long tank is one of 2 on board the Perla del Caribe container ship. Inside: half a million gallons of liquefied natural gas, or L.N.G., that is chilled to minus 260 degrees Fahrenheit. The gas will be the primary fuel used to power the ship when it begins moving cargo early next year. Compared with the heavy tarlike fuels used on most ships, L.N.G. can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by roughly 15 to 20%. @tlpix photographed the Perla del Caribe in San Diego while on #nytassignment. #stilllife" By nytimes on Instagram.
