5th workshop on marine black carbon emissions

GHG emissions

The International Council on Clean Transportation hosted its fifth technical workshop on marine black carbon (BC) emissions at the Energy Foundation offices in San Francisco, California, USA, on September 19th and 20th, 2018. This workshop was funded by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and the Pisces Foundation.

The goal of the workshop was to identify the most appropriate BC control measures for international shipping.

After considering presentations from BC researchers, scientists, and shipbuilders, and after intensive discussions, the 27 workshop participants identified more than a dozen appropriate BC control measures (technologies and operational practices), including liquified natural gas (LNG) or distillate fuels, diesel particulate filters (DPFs), and zero emission technologies such as batteries and fuel cells.

Workshop materials including the agenda, participant list, presentations, and a comprehensive workshop summary document are provided below.
