In recent years, sustainability in a climate and an environmental perspective has become an issue of highest priority. Base on the report of IMO, global shipping industry’s CO2 emission surpasses one billion tons; take the percentage of 3.3% of global total emission. The standard of harmful gas emissions from shipping has been verified constantly by IMO which will push the marine engine supplier to improve the fuel efficiency and reduce the exhaust gas emission. According to the MARPOL VI requirement, the Sox emission should be reduced by 95%, Knox emission should be reduced by 85% base on current emission standard.
Asia Green Shipping Summit 2011 will held on June 15-17, 2011 in Shanghai China. This event includes two-day main conference and one day pre-conference seminar specialized on “LNG as a Ship’s Fuel”. It will address the following key issues:
