Countries meeting in early July at the International Maritime Organization’s environment committee (MEPC) managed to agree only on ‘headings’ to be included in a strategy, which itself will be the first step in a broader plan to cut ships’ greenhouse gas emissions.
A new study by the Finnish Meteorological Institute provides detailed information on ship emissions by using real-time data on international shipping traffic. It calculated that global ship emissions in 2015 amounted to 831 million tonnes ...
A new study by the International Council on Clean Transport (ICCT) compares the economic and environmental trade-offs of switching from heavy residual fuel oil (HFO) to two alternative fuels, distillate fuel and liquefied natural gas (LNG), in the Arctic.
Under measures already in place, land transport in the EU is expected to consume 43 Mtoe (million tonnes of oil equivalent) less energy per year in 2030 than it did in 2010, according to a study by CE Delft.
High air pollution levels found on cruise ship’s deck
Undercover measurements of harmful ultra-fine particles (PM) on the sun deck of a European cruise ship revealed concentrations up to 200 times higher than natural background levels and 20 times worse than in the busy city centres with heavy traffic ..
