Techno-Economic Analysis and Life Cycle Assessment of Greenhouse Gas and Criteria Air Pollutant Emissions for Biobased Marine Fuels
Biofuels can play an essential role in the future marine fuel that is more renewable, and lower sulfur and other emissions. When used for marine propulsion, biofuels could offer a potential
Promising Strategies for the Reduction of Pollutant Emissions from Working Vessels in Offshore Wind Farms: The Example of Taiwan
There are excellent offshore wind resources in the ocean off the west coast of Taiwan, and renewable offshore wind power has been actively developed in recent years. This study intends to establish a

Estimation of Pollutant Emissions and Environmental Costs Caused by Ships at Port: A Case Study of Busan Port
To reduce air pollutants, the International Maritime Organisation and port authorities use ship emissions regulations, such as MARPOL Annex VI and green port policies. To measure the effectiveness of


Emissions Tradeoffs among Alternative Marine Fuels: Total Fuel Cycle Analysis of Residual Oil, Marine Gas Oil, and Marine Diesel Oil
The analysis suggests that product refining efficiency influences the CO2 tradeoff more than differences in the physical and energy parameters of the alternative fuels, suggesting that modest increases in CO2 could be offset by efficiency improvements at some refineries.
Sulphur abatement globally in maritime shipping
In 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) decided on global regulations to reduce sulphur emissions to air from maritime shipping starting 2020. The regulation implies that ships can
Impact of fuel quality regulation and speed reductions on shipping emissions: implications for climate and air quality.
The analysis presented provides direct estimations of the emissions reductions that can be realized by California fuel quality regulation and VSR program, in addition to providing new information relevant to potential health and climate impact of reduced fuel sulfur content, fuel quality and vessel speed reductions.
Natural gas as a marine fuel
Cleaner fuels for ships provide public health benefits with climate tradeoffs
It is shown how cleaner marine fuels will reduce premature deaths and childhood asthma but results in larger warming.
