Cutting shipping carbon emissions with new EU plan

| Sourced From Clickgreen |

Maritime transport causes about 4% of global man-made CO2 emissions which makes its carbon footprint approximately as high as Germany’s.

There is no regulation of international maritime transport emissions yet, but this is currently under discussion in the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Event: RIVIERA MARITIME MEDIA’S CO2 SHIPPING CONFERENCE IN LONDON ON 6-7 MAY 2010 TO TACKLE THIS KEY QUESTION

WILL THE DRIVE TO CONTROL CLIMATE CHANGE MAKE CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) A MAJOR NEW GAS CARRIER CARGO?

What:
A major new gas carrier cargo?

When:
6 – 7 May 2010

Where:
London, UK

Organiser:
Riviera Maritime Media

Gas carriers stand poised to play a key role in the logistics chains that will be required to implement the range of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects that have been proposed worldwide. It is estimated that CCS schemes could lead to the capture and sequestration of up to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per annum within the next 15 years, or 20 per cent of all the CO2 given off by fossil fuel-burning power stations and other heavy industrial plant.
