IAPH Clean Marine Fuels work presented to IMO
Technological innovation and the global introduction of alternative fuels and other energy sources for international shipping will be integral to achieve the ambition set out in the Initial IMO Strategy on reduction of GHG emissions from ships. To take stock of ongoing initiatives, the IMO virtually held a symposium last week on alternative low-carbon and zero-carbon fuels for shipping.The Chair of the IAPH Clean Marine Fuels working group, Peter Alkema (Port of Amsterdam), joined the symposium which presented state-of-the art research and innovation, discussed the advancement of alternative low-carbon and zero-carbon fuels in international shipping, and looked at initiatives to promote the availability, affordability and uptake of future marine fuels. You can watch the session in which Peter participated below. The complete sessions as well as all presentations can be downloaded from the IMO website.
