A two-year scientific wash-water study conducted based on Carnival Corporation’s cruise ships have shown that the use of scrubbers are a safe and effective means of compliance with the IMO 2020 sulphur cap requirements.

A new study on how vessels can achieve zero emissions has been released by Lloyd’s Register (LR) and University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS), showing what is needed for shipping as it heads toward the IMO 2050 greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction strategy.

Over SGD2m ($1.5m) in scholarships have been given out to 53 students by Singapore maritime industry for local and overseas studies, as part of the MaritimeONE Scholarships and Tripartite Maritime Scholarship (TMSS) programme.

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has announced it has been awarded a grant by the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to support the planning for a LNG import terminal.

Estimations by the IMO put shipping emissions at 20% lower in 2012 than in 2007, a drop from 2.8% to 2.2% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Lloyd’s Register has conducted a study in conjunction with University College London to establish shipping’s fuel mix by 2030.
