'Shipping & Climate' Change: Upcoming IMarEST Lecture

Press Release
Friday, March 08, 2013

‘Shipping and Climate Change: how Science can aid an industry that emits more CO2 than the UK’ is second in the ‘Sea Changes Lecture Series’.

The series, organised by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) in association with University College London (UCL), aims to examine the relationship between marine science, technology and engineering.

‘Shipping and Climate Change: how Science can aid an industry that emits more CO2 than the UK’, will take place in the Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre, UCL, London WC1E 7JE on Monday 18 March, 2013. It will be presented by Dr Tristan Smith, UCL Energy Institute, London and Professor John Carlton, City University, London and will be chaired by Dr Alistair Greig, UCL Mechanical Engineering, with Dr Gillian Reynolds, Environment and Sustainability Consultants and Professor Richard Bucknall, UCL as panellists when the floor is opened for discussion in what is bound to be an interesting debate.

On-going work at UCL on the topic of reducing shipping emissions will be outlined, as will deductions about what it tells us about the future of ships and shipping. Strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from shipping can be broken down into three categories, the lecturers explain: “Operational changes that reduce fuel consumption, technological advances that improve ship fuel efficiency, and alternative fuels with lower net lifecycle GHG emissions. Additionally, facing this tremendous challenge requires co-operation between scientists, engineers, technologists and policy makers, all of whom have vital roles to play.”
