In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) approved a historical strategy for CO2 and other GHG´s from shipping. The strategy includes concrete reduction targets for the sector and requires shipping to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, pursuing efforts towards total 50% GHG reductions in 2050, compared to 2008. Different stakeholders from the industry will give their view of how the targets can be reached by new technologies, new fuel types and engine technologies and new ways of ship operation or others means.
16:30 - 16:35 Welcome by Valdemar Ehlers, Danish Maritime
16:35 – 17:05 Implementing the IMO GHG strategy by Lau Blaxekjær, Special Advisor, Danish Maritime Authority
This presentation will provide an overview of the political process and implementation of the IMO GHG Strategy. Focus will be on the so-called goal-based short-term measure proposed by Denmark and others. The general concept of the measure is to apply to all ships a mandatory carbon intensity reduction goal under the SEEMP to take effect no later than 2023. The carbon intensity reduction goal is derived from the Strategy's Objective 2 to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030.

18:35 – 18.55 The bridge to carbon negative shipping: decarbonICE by Mikkel Navarro Hansen, CEO Maritime Development Center - MDC
In order to reach a maximum of 1,5 degree temperature increase, most paths points to the need for negative emissions and carbon storage. DecarbonICE is an innovation that enables just that for shipping. We will introduce the decarbonICE project platform and the technical innovation that can ensure capture of ships greenhouse gas emissions and permanent storage in the seabed sediments. A platform run by MDC with support from major global shipowners, shipyards and shippers.
18:55 - 19:25 Green Ammonia as Fuel by Pat A Han, R&D Director Syngas Conversion Technology Development, Haldor Topsoe A/S
Ammonia produced from renewable energy, water and air could become the preferred zero carbon fuel for heavy transportation.
Once scaled up, the production of this so-called green ammonia can make the marine sector meet their 2050 emissions target. Using ammonia as one of the main fuel for marine transportation will allow for even more renewable energy facilities and create synergy for supplying up to 100% green power in a stable power grid.
The event is in collaboration with Danish Society for Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Foundation
