“While ships make up just 5% to 7% of global transport oil demand, according to Goldman Sachs, they emit half of sulfur from transport because they use the dirtiest fuel—literally the bottom of the barrel,” Wall Street Journal reporter Spencer
If shipping owners don’t covert to liquefied natural gas, IMO wants them to either to burn diesel which operates trucks and trains or install expensive scrubbers like the ones on coal-fired power plants.
Companies like Tote, which hauls cargo in over-the-road truck trailers between Tacoma and Anchorage, have been converting fleets to LNG. “These vessels are the most advanced, environmentally responsible vessels of their kind – reducing particulate matter by 99 percent, vessel sulfur emissions by 98 percent, nitrogen oxides by 91 percent and CO2 by 35 percent,” TOTE reports.
Container shipping giant Hapag-Lloyd is testing LNG. The German company is retrofitting its 15,000 container ‘megaship’ Sajir to cleaner burning LNG becoming the first in the world to convert a ship of this size.
Older vessels unable to cost-effectively meet the standard will be scrapped—-hopefully in American shipyards which better protect workers, pay family wages with benefits, and have state-of-the art environmental protection.
