    Readying the workhorses of the sea: The path to zero-carbon bulk carriers

    Readying the workhorses of the sea: The path to zero-carbon bulk carriers

    How can bulk owners and operators balance short-term commercial pressures and long-term climate imperatives? What investments, strategies and collaborations can best position fleets for deep decarbonisation? What role do class societies and other stakeholders play in enabling the transition?
     
    This podcast will deliver meaningful insights on what it takes to ‘green’ bulk shipping while balancing commercial realities and climate imperatives.
     
    The dry bulk shipping industry is at a crossroads. Bulk carrier owners and operators must pursue deep emissions cuts, while maintaining uninterrupted services.
     
    New regulations like IMO’s 2050 net zero target and the Carbon Intensity Index will force change, yet adequate zero-carbon fuels and technology remain years from being market-ready. How can new regulations, alternative fuels, efficiency gains, and innovations like wind assisted propulsion enable the transition?

    Buoyant crude and product tanker markets, delivery dates of 2026 and 2027 for new tonnage and continued uncertainty on fuel choices at the newbuilding stage have propelled sales and purchase activity in the second hand tanker market and set asset values soaring.
     
    This development brings key questions into sharp focus.
    The looming tanker capacity crunchAvailable tonnage on the second hand marketFactoring in CII and EEXI requirementsMatching the right secondhand tanker and the right trade  Understanding terminal restrictions and requirementsOptions for extending service life of older tonnage

    Green Corridors and investment risk to decarbonisation

    Green Corridors and investment risk to decarbonisation

    What are the key investment risks? What do green corridors and the Silk Alliance do to address this?

    Options are limited right now and with high risks. Most are unable to invest in long-term solutions.Collaborations with governments and ports are needed in green corridors to support the investments.Many aspects and challenges remain, but we need to gain exposure and education on them as a first step to solving them.

    Closing the loop on shipping's circular economy

    Closing the loop on shipping's circular economy

    Shipping has focused on fuels as the one factor it can control in the push to decarbonise, but the creation of a truly sustainable industry will require a more holistic ‘lifecycle’ approach.

    Defining sustainability criteria for marine fuels

    Defining sustainability criteria for marine fuels

    In a podcast moderated by Lloyd’s List managing editor Richard Meade, the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) and Lloyd’s Register bring together industry experts to talk about why the sustainability of marine fuels needs to be taken into account alongside price, availability and technical feasibility considerations.
     
    SSI recently published the white paper Defining sustainability criteria for zero and low carbon marine fuels which sets out sustainability issues and principles surrounding marine fuels under consideration for shipping’s decarbonisation. SSI member representatives will talk about how sustainability criteria can contribute to the development of industry standards and certification schemes to assure and facilitate the selection of – and demand for – sustainable marine fuels.
