Conference with simultaneous translation (Ita – Eng – Ita)

First Session

CO2 and energy efficiency: the contribution of maritime transport to the energy and economic efficiency of the logistics chain

Thursday, 27th September

9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Sala Dione, The Maritime Station Congress Center, Naples


From 9 th to 13 th was held in London the 72nd session of MEPC (Marine Environmental Protection Committee) of IMO (International Maritime Organization). Environmental activists have written in big letters on the other side of the Thames, opposite to the headquarters of United Nations agencies, “IMO Don’t Seek Paris” and IMO, after years of discussions and uncertainties, has adopted a position on the reduction of GHG emissions from ships.

Initiatives had been taken in recent years (from 2013 EEDI, EOI and SEEMP are part of a legislation but that is not considered enough according to public opinion and European Union.

The document (MEPC 72/WP1) written by the Working Group was adopted with the definition of the following objectives (original text):

  1. Carbon intensity of the ship to decline through implementation of further phases of the energy efficiency design index (EEDI) for new ships

Review with the aim to strengthen the energy efficiency design requirements for ships with the percentage improvement for each phase to be determined for each ship type, as appropriate;

  1. Carbon intensity of international shipping to decline

To reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, pursuing efforts towards 70% by 2050, compared to 2008;

  1. GHG emissions from international shipping to peak and decline

To peak GHG emissions from international shipping as soon as possible and to reduce the total annual GHG emissions by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008 whilst pursuing efforts towards phasing them out as called for in the Vision as a point on a pathway of CO2 emissions reduction consistent with the Paris Agreement temperature goals.


But MEPC 70 had adopted rule 22° of Annex VI to MARPOL about “data collection system” on fuel consumption of ships entry into force the last 1st March 2018 and checks will start the next 1st January 2019.

The Session will show the main tech solutions to monitoring and reducing CO2 from ships through improvements of energy efficiency.

Some Shipping companies will bring their testimony about initiatives to implement MRV Regulation and current projects of energy efficiency. 


Main Topics

  • Implementation of the European MRV regulation on the monitoring of energy consumption and CO2 emissions from maritime transport
  • Systems for continuous monitoring of fuel consumption and / or CO2 emissions from maritime transport
  • Engine and propulsive innovations (propeller, rudder, azimuth thrusters, etc.)
  • Anti-fouling systems for the hull with high energy efficiency
  • Information systems to support the optimal management of the energy performance of navigation
  • Solutions for the energy efficiency of the logistics chain (stowage optimization systems, effects of port dredging on the increase of the naval capacity, elimination of port “bottlenecks”, etc.)
