Dr. Christos Chryssakis took the floor and during his presentation he did not only cover the latest developments related to the global sulphur cap, including expected implications for the industry, but he also discussed solutions for reaching the 2030 IMO target as well as the latest market trends in terms of alternative marine fuels uptake.
Once completed, Martin Hees took the podium. He presented the new legislation for marine fuels on sulphur cap as well as the EU and IMO regulations for MRV, Ballast Water Management and others, and suggested ways that owners can explore to get their companies ready for these new challenges.
