January 11, 2019     |     1300-1800hrs

Thanks to our partners at Cal Maritime for a successful industry forum on the rapidly changing “airscape” for ship emissions. Not since the transference from sail to steam has the marine industry seen such a dramatic requirement to change its operational practices to meet regulatory and societal demands.

This seminar examined:

  • What shipping is doing to meet public and regulatory expectations?
  • What are the options available now and in the future?
    • Retrofits
    • Options at the ports
    • Alternative Energy
  • And more!
