Fuel, decarbonisation and emissions

The 2050 IMO target of 50% reduction in CO2 emissions already spurred a range of efforts to curb fuel consumption and transition in shipping. We are ready to provide knowledge development, life cycle and risk assessments and other issues of crucial importance to the alternative fuel strategy.

But it should not be left out that fossil fuel is still around and will be for decades. LITEHAUZ is still part of a continuous development of the MARPOL Annexes and maintain focus on reducing fuel consumption and emissions of air pollutants from combustion engines. This includes assessments and best practices related to an HFO fuel band in the Arctic, the ECAs for SOx and Nox, the EEDI and SEEMP, and most recently a renewed interest for Market Based Measures and emissions trading in shipping.
