Maritime Air Pollution Virtual Forum

09:00 - 15:00

Regulations. Ports. Operations.


Riviera’s Maritime Air Pollution Virtual Forum comprises a series of roundtable discussions. Our sessions focus on regulations, ports and the owner/operator perspective. This event is part of Riviera’s series of Maritime Air Pollution virtual and live conferences and webinars.


Expect lively and informed discussion. The virtual forum is free to attend.

Please join us for any or all of the following:


The Maritime Air Pollution regulatory roundtable discussion

Date: Wednesday 30 June - Time: 09:00-10:00 BST

Join our experts drawn from across the industry in open discussion and get your questions answered on where the industry is heading on maritime air pollution regulations

  • A critical assessment of the regulatory timetable, including the EU-ETS
  • How to meet short-term emissions measures entering into force in 2023
  • Why moving from tank-to-wake to well-to-wake matters
  • Carbon pricing, tax or levy: what is proposed, when, and the implications
  • What the Carbon Intensity Indicator regime will require of operators
  • The revision of the EU Alternative Fuels Directive and its implications for ports and shippers
  • Tax versus market-based mechanisms

Panellists include:

Lotten Kronudd, Senior Adviser, ADS Insight Belgium and Managing Director, ADS Insight Scandinavia
Dragos Rauta, Technical Director, INTERTANKO

Nick Makar, Senior Vice President, Maritime Administration and Regulatory Affairs, IRI/The Marshall Islands Registry


The Maritime Air Pollution ports
roundtable discussion

Date: Wednesday 30 June - Time: 11:00-12:00 BST


Ports are pursuing a mix of pathways to support decarbonisation. Investments in shore-power facilities, electric-charging systems and bunkering facilities for alternative fuels are ramping up. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is scaling up shore-based power for sea-going vessels, with the aim of having a high percentage of vessels plugged in at the quay by 2030.

Join us as we assess the impact these measures will have on the industry‘s carbon footprint and what needs to be prioritised.

  • No CO2 at berth by 2030?
  • Ports and fuel availability
  • The emergence of new bunkering hubs
  • Shore connections and energy-storage solutions
  • Wasted argument: why do ports differentiate between ballast and scrubber discharges?
  • If Amazon can do it... the time has come for just-in-time arrivals
  • Real cost of zero fossil carbon emissions fuels. What does NH3 cost to make and how is it made?

Panellists include:
Eero Lehtovaara, Head of Regulatory Affairs, ABB
Don Gregory, Director, EGCSA

Anders Skibdal, CEO, PureteQ

Sigurd Jenssen, Director, Exhaust Treatment, Wärtsilä

The Maritime Air Pollution operators’ roundtable discussion

Date: Wednesday 30 June - Time: 14:00-15:00 BST

The responsible operator’s goal is to balance care for the planet, people and responsible trade with compliant, safe and commercially successful operations. Meeting these aims is less straightforward. Operators are weighing several critical questions: to persist with conventional fuels and a scrubber or a next-generation fuel? And what of fuel availability and competition from other sectors? How much certainty is there when it comes to green-house-gas reduction and regulation and well-to-propeller emissions? And what can be done to future-proof operations?

Join our panellists drawn from the worlds of operation and beyond in open discussion and get your questions answered on how to mitigate and manage maritime air pollution

  • Living with today’s maritime air pollution regulatory timetable
  • Timetable versus route map
  • Ports and fuel availability: selection and when and where to shift
  • Engine power considerations
  • Lessons learned on speed and route optimisation
  • Retrofit versus new design: operational experience
  • Preparing your supply chain for new regulations
  • How best to future-proof operations

Panellists include:
Mark Cameron, Executive Vice President & COO, Ardmore Shipping

Prashanth Athipar, Principal, Maritime Supply Chain Excellence and Sustainability, BHP

Steve Bee, Group Commercial & New Business Development Director, Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS)

Michael Kaczmarek, Senior VP Corporate Shipbuilding, Carnival Corporation
