Ship emissions high on agenda at IMO environment meeting
12/7/2009

The Marine Environment Protection Committee of the International Maritime Organization is expected to agree on a package of technical and operational measures to reduce greenhouse gases from international shipping and to hold an in-depth debate on possible market-based instruments to provide incentives for the shipping industry, when it meets for its 59th session from 13 to 17 July 2009, at the IMO Headquarters in London.

The MEPC will consider proposed technical and operational measures to reduce greenhouse gases emissions from ships. These include an Energy Efficiency Design Index for new ships, which is intended to stimulate innovation and technical development of all the elements influencing the energy efficiency of a ship from its design phase, and a Ship Energy Management Plan, for new and existing ships, which incorporates best practices for the fuel efficient operation of ships. The plan incorporates an Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator for new and existing ships, which enables operators to measure the fuel efficiency of a ship in operation.
