There’s still time to register for Marine Log’s Global Greenship 2007


Pressure is mounting on the maritime industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A proposed series of amendments to MARPOL Annex VI dramatically reduces air pollution from ships by establishing a new tier of performance-based standards for marine diesel engines. The proposed amendments also seek to establish stringent emission rules for ships operating in coastal areas with acute air quality problems.

Amendments would apply to both newbuilds and existing vessels. Clearly, these would have far-reaching implications for the shipping industry, as well as engine manufacturers and suppliers.

Air emissions is just one of the many topics on the program at the 2007 Global Greenship Conference & Expo.
