Maritime Air Pollution Conference, Europe

22 September 2020 - 23 September 2020
09:00 - 18:00
Amsterdam

RouteMAP for maritime industry GHG emissions and air pollution reduction

On 1 January 2020, a once-in-a-generation regulatory change took place. This conference will explore vessel owner/operator experiences with their chosen compliance technologies including fuels, lubricants, engines and scrubbers.

The conference will examine the performance of scrubbers in the field and address the likelihood of a bottleneck occurring in the near future as more companies prepare for installations. Also, the event will examine recent investment decisions by comparing those owners/operators with scrubbers and those paying higher prices for VLSFO.

Key industry players will meet to discuss not only issues relevant to IMO 2020 but also the challenges that lie ahead, the main challenge being the compliance requirements concerning greenhouse gases and decarbonisation.

 

Delegate rate - EUR€1895 (for details of our COVID-19 policy click here)

 

Programme Highlights
