The globalization of industrial and agricultural processes makes maritime transport (#shipping) a fundamental sector of the world economy. Overall, 25% of world-delivered energy consumption is employed for transport. About 75% of this energy is employed for road transport, 12% for shipping, and 12% for air transport (EIA, 2016).

Here are some of the highlights of the impact of port emissions:

  • Meteorology, ship positioning and engine type influence the port role on nearby city air quality.
  • The port activities contribute 33% of NO2 43% of PM10 and 60% of SO2 causing no exceedance of the AQ limits
  • Low Sulphur fuels do not prevent release of pollutants as ultra-fine particles, and black carbon.
  • High loads of black carbon and ultrafine particles coexist with admitted loads of NO2, SO2, and PM.

The SEANERGY Project aims to tackle the source of these issues by creating a Master Plan
that will help transform #ports into clean energy hubs.
