Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
Infocast’s Ship Air-Emissions Management Summit is set to take place in just two weeks on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. The October 28-30 event brings together stakeholders to network and brainstorm the most cost-effective, compliant solutions as new regulatory requirements come online. With high-level government speakers and tech experts on the faculty, this is a must-attend event for ship owners and operators, ship builders, regulators, shipping associations, equipment suppliers and port authorities.
As new regulations requiring ships to drastically cut the amount of allowable NOx and SOx emissions come into force next year, many shipowners and operators are facing tough choices when it comes to compliance. Fuel costs, already at record highs, will rise further when the cost of switching fuels, and of expensive retrofits, are added into the mix.
The event will address the most critical questions right now, such as: (1.) the feasibility of scrubbers and specialized on-ship cleaning technology as a solution, (2.) whether the switch from traditional bunker fuels to diesel and LNG is worthwhile and, if so, what’s the best timing, and (3.) how to find the balance to accomplish short-term and long-term concerns and compliance targets in the most cost-effective manner.
Hosted aboard the Queen Mary, one of the most unique conference venues in America, the timely event gathers all of the stakeholders to exchange information and strategize cost-effective, practical solutions for compliance - for now and going forward. Attendees have an opportunity to join the most in-depth discussion available of still-evolving requirements, to ensure all relevant ship air emissions requirements and corporate targets are met cost-effectively.
