Maritime Air Pollution Webinar Week

09:00 - 14:45

Join us for Maritime Air Pollution Webinar Week, in association with the EGCSA

Beginning 26 May, we will be holding a series of daily webinars, each meticulously researched and organised in response to a present maritime air pollution related challenge, headache or opportunity. The webinars are free to attend and are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled.


Should you wish to join one of our expert panels please contact Tom Kenny

Please join us for any or all of the following:


Our discussions are focused, cover the advertised subjects, and deliver registrants actionable insights.


MAP: Climate Change

Date: Tuesday 26 May - Time: 09:00-09:45BST

Watch now

What are the main energy conversion options for ships’ propulsion in the next 30 years? And if the the marine diesel engine is the industry’s primary power source for the foreseeable future, which fuels will deliver on the industry’s decarbonisation ambitions? And what are the financial and energy economics? Join our panel for open discussion and, crucially, their take on the answers.

Join us as we cover

  • Assessing our energy options: nuclear, diesel, steam, gas turbine, fuel cell, wind, currents/tides
  • The marine diesel engine: here to stay
  • Fuels that can achieve zero fossil fuel-sourced carbon emissions
  • Bio fuels, hydrogen, ammonia
  • Economics of a fuels shift
  • Energy options: case studies including how to harness hydrogen to make it a practical and easy-to-handle fuel

Don Gregory, Director, EGCSA
Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media

Panellists include:
Ian Adams, Executive Director, Clean Shipping Alliance
Kjeld Aabo, Director, MAN Energy Solutions

Eero Pajunen, Sales Manager, Langh Ship

MAP: Human Health

Date: Wednesday 27 May - Time: 09:00-09:45BST

Watch now

The risks of air pollution to human health is a matter of public discourse and the role of ports - especially those in populated areas - is becoming increasingly and more intensively scrutinised. There are no easy solutions or fixes. Our panellists will enagage in open discussion on short, medium and long-term options.

Join us as we cover

  • Sources of pollution - the port perspective
  • Impact of fuel switching on MAP - not as easy as flicking a switch
  • EGCS audit: have we seen measurable benefits?
  • Sources of pollution - marine diesel engines
  • What’s next

Don Gregory, Director, EGCSA
Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media

Panellists include:
Francesco Di Natale. Professor of Unit Operations, Univeristy of Naples
John Murlis, Consultant, ex Environment Agency

MAP: Opportunity and Incentivising Change

Date: Thursday 28 May - Time: 09:00-9:45BST

Watch now


Where are the opportunities to reduce maritime air pollution and how can we incentivise change? Easy wins are available that can reduce financial burden and establish behaviours and norms that could redress the financial and operational behaviours of the last 20 years. Join us to better understand where these opportunities lie and how you can implement them.

Join us as we cover

  • Overnight reductions in CO2: they are possible
  • How to modernise your business and charter practises
  • Do EEDI, EEOI or SEEMP deliver? Are their days numbered?
  • Now is the time to ration fossil fuel-sourced carbon emissions; here’s how.
  • How to create a cohesive approach in a fragmented industry

Don Gregory, Director, EGCSA
Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media

Panellists include:
Nicholas Makar, Senior VP, Maritime Administration/Regulatory Affairs, IRI/ The Marshall Islands Registry
Neil Anderson, Head of Sales & Marketing, Daphne Technology
Mark West, Project Manager, Azurtane Ltd

Scrubbers: service experience, sulphur spreads, safety and science

Date: Friday 29 May - Time: 09:00-09:45BST

Watch now


Months into 2020 and scrubbers have been in the spotlight with stories of Coronavirus-linked delayed installations, transformed economics resulting from low bunker prices and talk of more open-loop scrubber bans. However, what are the operational realities? Where do the facts and the hype diverge?

Join us as we cover

  • Service experience: running hours, monitoring, compliance
  • Sulphur spreads: the true operating costs
  • Safety: functional issues
  • Science: closed minds on open loop bans

Don Gregory, Director, EGCSA
Edwin Lampert, Head of Content, Riviera Maritime Media

Panellists include:
Ian Adams, Executive Director, Clean Shipping Alliance
Anders Skibdal, CEO, Pureteq
Poul Woodall, Director, Environment & Sustainability, DFDS
Alberto Di Cecio, Director - Marine Department, Ecospray Technologies
Joost Wijdeveld, Sales Director, VDL AEC Maritime

The role of ports in decarbonising the maritime industry

Date: Friday 29 May - Time: 14:00-14:45BST

Watch now


To meet their electricity needs for their ancillary systems while berthed vessels use their shipboard diesel generators, producing a significant amount of CO2, GHG and PM emissions. Shore power connections in port offer the potential to substantially reduce ship emissions depending on the power source. This webinar will take a case study approach, examining costs, technology challenges and potential environmental benefits of shore power connections.

Join us as we cover

  • Regional, national and international regulatory considerations
  • Local/regional electrical grid concerns
  • Shoreside technology options
  • Health benefits to region
  • Maintenance benefits to ships and vessels
  • Financing availability
  • Capital investment/costs of developing infrastructure

Panellists include:
Ricardo Schiappacasse, Director, Forest Products and Specialty Cargoes, Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT)
Katrien Van Itterbeeck, Program Manager Sustainable Shipping, Antwerp Port Authority
Jennifer States, Director for Blue Economy, DNV GL
Andreas Slotte, Head of Sustainable Development, Port of Helsinki
