Zero emission fuels for Shipping


9h às 10h30

Energia – Combustíveis

Brazil Climate Action Hub – COP25 (Blue Zone)

English and Spanish (translation available)

In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted an Initial Strategy on the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships. The agreement aims to reduce at least 50 % of the GHG emissions from shipping by 2050, compared to 2008 levels. The Initial Strategy represents a framework for Member States to develop plans to reduce GHG emissions from shipping, which includes (among other points) the implementation of candidate short-,mid- and long-term measures for decarbonization of maritime transport.

The event will discuss the development of zero emission fuels for shipping, with a particular focus on Latin America. There will be a presentation on the potential of alternative fuels to decarbonize the shipping industry, from UCL Energy Institute, followed by a presentation on the Brazilian potential to produce marine biofuels (biobunkers), based on a study conducted by Coppe-UFRJ. The presentations will be followed by comments from a representative of the Spanish maritime sector (tbc), and a Q&A session moderated by Dr. Lavinia Hollanda, Senior Consultant on Sustainable Shipping for the Institute for Climate and Society and presented by Míriam Zaitegui, Senior Climate Change Policy Officer for ECODES.
