CO2 emissions linked to to the fuel switch in the maritime industry
The sulphur directive taking effect in January 2015 in the Baltic, English Channel and North Sea has reduced sulphur emissions from the shipping industry by over 85 %. Several studies also indicates only minor changes in CO2 emissions but none of them have included the altered behavior in the refining industry and thereby do not capture the holistic perspective that indicate indirect emissions may have increased by up to 100 million tonnes of CO2 annually due to the maritime fuel switch. How the added emissions occur is described in the reportÂ CO2 and sulphur emissions from the shipping industry.
