Description: International shipping is currently at a crossroads. The International Maritime Organization decided, in April 2018, to adopt an Initial Strategy so as to achieve by 2050 a reduction of at least 50% in maritime greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, compared to 2008 levels, the last among a series of recent developments as regards sustainable shipping.
This book takes a cross-disciplinary view of the various dimensions of the maritime transportation sustainability problem. A variety of angles are used to examine the book topics, and these mainly include the technological point of view, as well as the economics, the logistics, and the environmental one. The book reviews models that can be used to evaluate decisions, policy alternatives and trade-offs. For sustainable shipping, a spectrum of technical, logistics-based and market based measures are being contemplated. All may have important side-effects as regards the economics and logistics of the maritime supply chain, including ports and hinterland connections.
Chapters cover many relevant topics: a general view of maritime transport sustainability, green ship technologies, information and communication technologies (ICTs) for sustainable shipping, green tramp ship routing and scheduling, green liner network design and speed optimization. Market based measures, oil pollution, ship recycling, sulphur emissions, ballast water management, alternative fuels and green ports are also covered. The book concludes by discussing prospects for the future, with a focus on the IMO Initial Strategy.
