Technologies for reduced environmental impact from ships

Objective



Initiate coordinated activities in industrial companies, research and educational institutions in European shipping nations to enhance the awareness of the potential for reducing the life cycle environmental impact from maritime transportation in the short and long term. Foster development and adaptation of technologies, and design and analysis methods for ship concepts, ship building processes, and ship operation, maintenance and scrapping practices which can lead to significant improvement of ship life cycle environmental performance. Develop an improved basis for R&D priorities, and policy development, founded on knowledge of life cycle environmental performance of candidate means and measures. Knowledge of state-of-the-art, and development potential in key technologies influencing life cycle environmental impact from ship building will be compiled and disseminated. Methodology for performing life cycle analyses of such impacts will be developed, as a basis for technology assessment, policy development, and as elements of ship design processes to facilitate the development of ships with improved environmental impact properties. Short to medium term, as well as long term perspectives will be analysed. The knowledge will enable industry to take an active role in shaping its future in this area. Four elements of competence are applied in this work: a) Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), a method for analysing the environmental impact along an entire product chain. This methodology is now being adopted by the International Standardisation Organisation (ISO-14040 thru 14043), documented in four standards in different stages of development. b) Methods for developing and assessing consistent and sustainable future scenarios for technological development. Such scenarios will form the framework, within which the development of the ship transportation industry will be analysed. c) System design and engineering methodology, generic and specific as applied to ship design and engineering processes. This forms the basis for consistent definition of functions, systems and subsystems with their boundaries and interactions. The system description from this process is the basis for environmental impact analysis in the LCA process. d) Competence in the ship technologies applied in designing, building, maintaining, operating, and scrapping of ships. This provides the necessary experience to analyse present solutions and practices and the impact on the ship as a system, of changing technological elements in its design.
