  1. 1. The Character of the Particle Emissions from Possible Future Marine Fuels in SOx ECAs

    Author : Maria Anderson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heavy fuel oil; emission factor; marine fuel; black carbon; marine diesel oil; LNG; ship emission; liquefied natural gas; nanoparticle;

    Abstract : Particles in the ambient air come from both natural and anthropogenic sources. One anthropogenic source is combustion of fossil fuels. The awareness of these particles impact on human health and climate has increased the interest for the particle emissions from e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Life Cycle Assessment of Present and Future Marine Fuels

    Author : Selma Bengtsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LCA; marine fuels; environmental impact; LNG; biofuels; heavy fuel oil; Life Cycle Assessment; marine gas oil; liquefied natural gas;

    Abstract : Interest in new fuels for marine propulsion is growing, mainly as a result of stricter environmental regulations but also due to increased attention to air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and the uncertainty of future oil supply. Several different fuels and exhaust abatement technologies are proposed for marine transportation, all of which have different advantages and disadvantages in relation to the environment and human health.

  3. 3. Particle Emissions from Ships

    Author : Maria Zetterdahl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LNG; marine fuel; fuel sulphur content; particle emission; sulphur emission control area; aromatics; SECA; heavy fuel oil; marine diesel oil; liquefied natural gas; ship emission;

    Abstract : Since 1st of January 2015 ships operating in sulphur emission control areas (SECAs) have to use marine fuels with a fuel sulphur content less than 0.1 %m/m. This regulation forces the ship owners to make a fuel shift and use low-sulphur marine fuel oils, use alternative fuels or use scrubbers on-board their ships. READ MORE

  4. 4. New Tides in Shipping : Studying incumbent firms in maritime energy transitions

    Author : Ignė Stalmokaitė; Björn Hassler; Johanna Yliskylä-Peuralahti; Tommy Larsson Segerlind; René Taudal Poulsen; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; shipping; incumbent firms; maritime energy transitions; multi-level perspective; dynamic capabilities; regime-niche interactions; decarbonisation; air-borne emissions; sustainability transitions; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : Shipping is a cornerstone of global transportation responsible for moving large volumes of traded goods. At the same time, negative environmental impacts of shipping operations have attracted growing concerns. READ MORE
