A new set of toolkits to assess and address emissions from ships and ports is now available from the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the global regulatory body for shipping.
In a recent paper, published in Journal of Cleaner Production, Schim van der Leoff, Godar & Prakash combine various data sets to estimate commodity and trade route specific shipping emissions.
Maritime carbon taxes have the potential and are promising instruments because they provide certainty over prices compared to other pricing instruments
Analysis by UMAS shows that if certain conditions prevail it will be no more expensive to decarbonise shipping than many other sectors of the economy
The study estimates that the EU has directly spent $250 million on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) projects in the marine sector, providing 50% partnership funding with the private sector to support a total of $500 million investment.
Multiple fuel options are on the table to reach zero emissions but all have their associated issues which need to be explored now both to identify the best of these options, and ensure they mature and become available.
The event, dubbed as the ‘Tony deBrum Declaration’, cap on carbon free shipping, will talk about how zero carbon shipping is possible today
New UK emissions study uses AIS (Automatic Identification System) data to estimate emissions and reveals domestic shipping fuel consumption to be approximately 250% more than previously estimated
Lloyd's Register (LR) and University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS) have today released ‘Zero Emission Vessels 2030’, a new study that aims to demonstrate the viability of zero emission vessels (ZEVs) – identifying what needs to be in place to make them a competitive solution for decarbonisation.
UMAS in collaboration with Lloyd’s Register will present the findings of the study which aims to demonstrate the viability of Zero Emission Vessels: identifying the drivers that need to be in place to make them a competitive solution for decarbonisation.
