Clean Ship – Towards Zero Ship Emission

The EU 2050 objectives set some intermediate targets for Eco-Efficient Vessel Emission Reduction for key pollutants: CO2: >80% (-30% by 2020), NOx: 100% (-80% by 2020), SOx: 100% (-80% by 2020) and Noise Reduction: -3dB. A review of current research (Ziarati et al, 2018) clearly shows that these targets are way off the targets set so far and are unlikely to be achieved by 2020.

The industry needs help. This proposal is to review current practices in emissions reduction by shipping companies and formulate primarily a generic course as to how ships can become reduce their harmful emissions and also more efficient; more efficient because if ships use less fuel then they also produce less pollution.

This proposal includes how to: set targets and objectives, how to monitor ship emissions, use of energy, and how to assess the effectiveness of proposed arrangements on pilot basis with a view to develop a standardise programme of training for the ship managers and their crews on means of reducing emissions and as well as fuel consumption.
