Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries launches a 'Marine Greenhouse Gas Reduction Response Research Council''해수부, 선박 온실가스 감축 나선다'

[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries launched a 'Marine Greenhouse Gas Reduction Response Research Council' on the 16th in order to respond to international regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.

Minister Kim has promoted the council, saying, "The regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from the International Maritime Organization (IMO) should be used as an opportunity for the development of the shipbuilding industry," and 18 related organizations and businesses decided to participate.

On April 13, the IMO announced that the international shipping industry should reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2050 compared to 2008.

In order to achieve this, it is necessary to switch to environmentally friendly fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) from fossil fuels currently used as fuel for ships in the medium and short term.

The Council plans to examine ways to utilize alternative clean fuel and fuel cells, which are being studied in the automobile industry, for ships. In addition, it plans to establish mid- and long-term strategies such as the restructuring of the shipping industry and the development of new technologies and materials for the shipbuilding industry.
