Cleaner and more Energy Efficient Shipping

06.10.2014 @ 08:30 - 22:00


Increased focus on adverse effects on health, environment and climate caused by emissions from shipping is stressing the need for a cleaner and more energy efficient shipping industry. Existing technical solutions, improved energy efficiency and alternative fuels are ways to minimize air pollution and CO2-emissions from shipping. But how can we meet the environmental as well as regulatory challenges in the most cost effective way and create benefits for the environment, climate and the industry? These issues will be discussed at a conference at Hilton Copenhagen Airport Hotel on October 6th as part of the Danish Maritime Days. The conference language is English and the main focus areas are:

  • Global warming and harmful air pollution from shipping.
  • Existing and coming regulation of emissions from shipping.
  • Technical solutions reducing air pollution from shipping.
  • Energy efficiency and alternative fuels reducing emissions.
