Danish Shipping has been working in recent weeks with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to establish guidelines for alternative fuels that promote a safer as well as greener future for the maritime industry.
he process is lengthy, but progress is being made, Danish Shipping notes. As ships are increasingly set to sail on new green fuels in the near future, it is important to have clear rules for their handling, adds Danish Shipping.
What does it require in terms of ship design, tanks, etc., to safely use the green fuels on board?
… asks Danish Shipping, explaining that different types of fuels come with different challenges and risks when used on ships.
Therefore, Danish Shipping has assisted Danish authorities with technical advice during a series of meetings in London at the IMO’s Sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers, where efforts were made to establish international guidelines for the use of the new green fuels, to make the goal of climate-neutral shipping in 2050 a reality.
The green transformation on the world’s seas requires both significant and ambitious political decisions as well as new advanced technical regulations and guidelines before the work towards climate-neutral shipping can be implemented in the daily operations of the maritime sector both at sea and on land.
