Coastal ferries are well-positioned to become electrified and to provide a cleaner option for summer coastal travel, analyses from China and the United States suggest.
Scrubbers, a newly popular technology that greatly reduces pollution from ship exhaust, have a serious downside: the pollutants they capture are typically disposed of in ocean waters. In essence, they convert air pollution to water pollution. This blog examines the impact of “washwater” discharged by ships in southeast Asia, a region rich in fishing grounds, and makes recommendations for reforming the practice.
Initial reactions to the European Commission’s “Fit for 55” proposal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the EU.
