ICCT study finds GHGs from shipping on the rise
Green Car Congress
OCTOBER 20, 2017
The new ICCT study combines global ship operations (AIS) data with detailed vessel characteristics for more than half a million ships to estimate GHG emissions and air pollution from shipping at high resolution (1° x 1°) on an hourly basis for the years 2013 to 2015. Container ships (23%), bulk carriers (19%) and oil tankers (13%) accounted for more than half of CO 2 emissions. Change in CO 2 emissions and CO 2 intensity for key ship classes.
