Key issues in LCA methodology for marine fuels
Highlights the impact of key considerations and methodological decisions when doing a life-cycle analysis (LCA) of transport fuels and demonstrates how these can impact the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to different alternative fuels.
Life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of hydrogen as a marine fuel and cost of producing green hydrogen in Brazil
Assesses renewable electrolysis hydrogen production costs and life-cycle GHG emissions for maritime applications in Brazil
Potential pathways for decarbonizing China’s inland waterway shipping
A new study commissioned by the ICCT analyzes China’s inland waterway shipping sector and provides recommendations for long-term decarbonization pathways that align with the country’s ambition to reach carbon peaking and, later, carbon neutrality.
Projects freight volumes and CO2 emissions from inland waterway shipping in China to 2060 under a business-as-usual scenario and scenarios compatible with 2 °C and 1.5 °C of global warming.
China’s Clean Diesel Action Plan: Phase II
Details the recently launched Action Plan for the Battle Against Diesel Truck Pollution.
Electrifying ports to reduce diesel pollution from ships and trucks and benefit public health: Case studies of the Port of Seattle and the Port of New York and New Jersey
Combines user-friendly, reduced-complexity tools to estimate the emissions reduction potential and health benefits of electrifying ocean-going vessels, harbor craft, and drayage trucks at two of the United States’ busiest ports.
Used cooking oil’s potential to reduce GHG emissions from Indonesia’s fishing fleet
Estimates the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction potential of adding used cooking oil (UCO)-based biodiesel to the fishing fleet in Indonesia and the fuel savings and GHG emissions benefits that come from banning trawlers.
China’s Clean Diesel Program: Benchmarking with international best practices and policy recommendations
Identifies a suite of diesel emission control strategies and policies for China to consider in the coming decades, based on a comparison with international best practices, and quantifies the emissions reduction potential of the proposed program.
How updating IMO regulations can promote lower greenhouse gas emissions from ships
Models and compares the attained Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) scores of large container and cruise ships using different fuel and engine combinations and then explores the consequences of reforming the EEDI to regulate all climate pollutants, rather than solely carbon dioxide, in its fourth phase.
Comparing the future demand for, supply of, and life-cycle emissions from bio, synthetic, and fossil LNG marine fuels in the European Union
Estimates demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel for ships trading with the European Union in 2030 and compares the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of using fossil or renewable LNG to consider renewable LNG’s potential to support climate goals.
