Description: The maritime industry faces challenges in adopting new technologies, alternative fuels and operational practices to comply with increasingly strict international, national and local regulations aimed at reducing sulfur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and other emissions from ships that are considered greenhouse gases (GHGs). National and international regulations, such as those introduced by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the European Union, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the California Air Resources Board and others are designed to reduce these emissions to varying degrees. Some emissions, such as methane and black carbon in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, may be regulated by the IMO in the future.
Many technologies are being considered to specifically reduce carbon emissions from shipping. The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) publication Setting the Course to Low Carbon Shipping: Pathways to Sustainable Shipping has categorized the available maritime fuel options for decarbonization. Among them, biofuels were identified as a potential low-carbon fuel that can enter the global market relatively quickly and help approach the IMO GHG reduction targets for 2050.
