The USCG/ASME Workshop on Marine Technology and Standards scheduled for July 29 and 30, 2010, in Washington DC, is a unique opportunity for classification societies, industry groups, standards development organizations, government organizations, and other interested members of the public to come together for a professional exchange of information on topics ranging from the technological impact on the marine industry, corresponding coverage in related codes and standards, and government regulations. 
Topics for the 2010 workshop include application of various marine technologies to promote green ships, such as safe and economical use of hydrogen (H2) fuel cells to power ships with zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and compressed natural gas (CNG) powered ships with reduced CO2 emissions.  This workshop is an opportunity for the public to provide expertise on technical matters affecting the marine industry and to improve future policymaking, standards development, and rulemaking, including discussion of possible regulatory changes to facilitate green ship technology.
