Stamatis Fradelos, ABS, provides an overview of latest green shipping developments including the BWM Convention, the unsettled implementation scheme and the USCG requirements, the establishment of the North Sea area (including the English Channel) and the Baltic Sea area as new NOx ECAs and the IMO decision on the applicability of global sulphur cap 0.5% after 1 January 2020.
Stamatis Fradelos, ABS gave a presentation on ‘’EU MRV Future Challenges’’ during the 2016 GREEN4SEA Conference & Awards. He said that there are various factors that can lead to inaccuracies in fuel measurement and subsequently in emissions reporting inconsistency. Therefore, ship operators would need to undertake due diligence to ensure the highest achievable accuracy and transparency.
