Envishipping - Total Environmental Footprint from Ships
18/11/2014

Envishipping is a research project that brings together leading domestic companies and institutions with the aim to explore the total environmental footprint of ships from a life cycle perspective. The project is partially funded by the Greek General Secretariat for Research and Technology.

Apart from the Laboratory for Maritime Transport of the National Technical University of Athens who coordinates the project, the rest of the partners of the Consortium are: POLYECO SA (leading company in integrated ship-waste management services in Greece), Hellenic SeaWays (HSW, major Greek passenger shipping company), the Research and Innovation branch of Det Norske Veritas (DNV-GL, located in the local office at Piraeus), the Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association (HELMEPA, a well known environmental NGO), Ariston Navigation Corp (a Greek owned cement carrier company), and the Company for Shipping Development Support and Cooperation (NAFS, a non profit subsidiary of the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping).

The main target of the project is the ships life cycle assessment through which the identification and categorization of all important factors contributing to the total environmental footprint of a ship can take place. The ship life cycle stages examined are the shipbuilding (i.e. the construction of the ship), ship operation including major maintenance activities and environment related aspects of the interface between ship and port, and finally the stage of ship dismantling/recycling.

A workshop to present the project to the Greek shipping community was held in the offices of the Hellenic Chamber of Shipping on the 14th of November 2014 with the following agenda:
