NEWS: Press/Product Release May 1. 2012
It’s like getting paid to reduce your existing fleets carbon emissions. Act now- there is no need to wait for a solution for increasing your business profitability now and more sustainable future forever…. it’s a win- win.
New innovation increases fuel efficiency with technology that easily integrates with existing ship applications- it pays for itself in months with ongoing savings.
This concept helps ship owners increase profit by reducing fuel consumption while also “greening your fleet” with emission reduction- lowering your global carbon footprint. It’s your annuity of green savings.
“Although maritime transport has the lowest ratio of CO2emissions per ton-kilometre transported compared to other modes of transport, its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are expected to increase from the current level of around 1 giga-tonne per year, by an estimated 150-200% over the next four decades.” Read more
It’s a startling fact is that just 15 of the world’s largest freighters produces as much Nitrogen Oxide as all cars, so even a 2% fuel saving is very environmentally significant.
“Today’s new standards if applied to all ships, not just newbuilds, would save the industry more than 220m tons of CO2 and $50bn a year. Chasing all profitable efficiency savings could save even more. This is a historic move by the IMO but there’s a bigger environmental and economic opportunity out there that’s too good to miss.”
Peter Boyd added: “There is a $70bn subsidy for environmental improvement in shipping, called fuel savings from more efficient vessels. The IMO decision on new-builds should result in fuel savings of $5bn annually by 2020 (and CO2 reductions of over 20m tons). The real prize for the planet and profitability is in the existing fleets if applied to all ships, not just newbuilds, would save the industry more than 220m tons of CO2 and $50bn a year. Chasing all profitable efficiency savings could save even more. This is a historic move by the IMO but there’s a bigger environmental and economic opportunity out there that’s too good to miss.”
Shipping is beginning a low carbon transformation as the market responds to open energy information, higher fuel prices and supply chain pressure from shippers considering environmental performance. How can entrepreneurs, the global shipping and finance industries, and leading ports work together to reap maximum financial rewards from the uptake of cleaner in innovations?

So Much for Automobile Pollution
As ships get bigger, the pollution is getting worse. The most staggering statistic of all is that just 16 of the world’s largest ships can produce as much lung-clogging sulphur pollution as all the world’s cars.
Because of their colosoduce as much lung-clogging sulphur pollution as all the world’s cars. Because of their colossal engines, each as heavy as a small ship, these super-vessels use as much fuel as small power stations. But, unlike power stations or cars, they can burn the cheapest, filthiest, high-sulphur fuel: the thick residues left behind in refineries after the lighter liquids have been taken. The stuff nobody on land is allowed to use. Full Article
