Progress made on life-cycle Greenhouse Gas (GHG) guidelines for alternative low/zero carbon marine fuels
An International Maritime Organization (IMO) working group has made concrete progress in developing lifecycle GHG/carbon intensity guidelines (LCA guidelines), to be utilized when assessing the overall climate impact of new fuels, which shipping needs to transition to in order to meet the GHG reduction ambitions, as set out in IMO's Initial GHG Strategy.
Draft interim guidelines aimed at providing international standard provisions for ships using fuel cell power installations have been agreed by IMO's Sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers (CCC 7).
"The IMO community is highly committed to tackling climate change," IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim says, in an interview for Making Waves: The Future of Shipping, a news-style video launched at IMO Headquarters (13 September) as part of London International Shipping Week.
The IMO Newsroom is staffed between 9.00 and 5.30 UK time, Monday to Friday, by members of the Public Information Services team.
