Theme Life Cycle Assessment of New Maritime Fuels

Event Summary

The seminar is organized by JTTRI (Japan Transport and Tourism Research Institute), in collaboration with the Administrations of Japan, Australia, Norway and European Comssion.

Various new low-carbon and zero-carbon maritime fuels are emerging such as LNG, methanol, Biodiesel, Ammonia, and Hydrogen; synthetic fuels made from captured carbon would join the portfolio in the future.
In light of ambitious goals under the IMO-GHG strategies, with possible revision in the near future, the potential GHG emission reduction through the onboard application of conventional energy saving technologies would saturate. It is crucial to promote the investments on, and the uptake of, new fuels which would have an overall positive climate impact.

In order to develop effective policy tools in such direction, we need to pay attention to total supply chain of those fuels, and establish analytical approaches for assessing and quantifying upstream and downstream GHG emissions; such assessment should be based on transparent methodologies and scientific criteria, possibly with robust certification scheme.

In this context, IMO has been working on the developing the draft Lifecycle GHG and Carbon Intensity Guidelines for Maritime Fuels, which provides Well-to-Tank and Tank-to-Wake GHG emission factors.

While there is a view that the upstream emission would be largely out of IMO’s field of influence, the organizer considers that analytical methodologies of upstream emission assessment – Life Cycle Assessment of GHG emission of a particular type of maritime fuel – is a useful tool in order NOT to incentivize the uptake of fuels and their associated pathways with an overall adverse GHG impacts. Furthermore, JTTRI would like to invite attention of the regulators that oversimplification of the upstream emission involves risks of giving commercial advantages to the onboard use of those fuels which emit a larger amount of GHG through the supply chain.
