Webinar 1/3: Green Shipping Corridors and Country Case Studies

Green shipping corridors are shipping routes powered by zero-carbon emissions ships. Designed as cooperation between shippers, ports, governments and energy suppliers, they turn climate ambitions into action. The speakers will discuss setting up a Green Shipping Corridor with different stakeholders, look at infrastructure requirements and the business opportunities for energy companies and ports and talk hands-on about establishing a PtX ecosystem. The majority of international trade relies on shipping, which contributes around two to three percent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. There are global and European goals and regulations in place to move towards a carbon-neutral future. However, we need to evaluate if regulations alone are enough to drive climate neutrality in maritime transportation. What measures are necessary to shift from traditional heavy oils and fossil fuel marine diesel to more environmentally friendly alternatives? How do PtX fuels factor into this transition? Additionally, can the implementation of green shipping corridors create a sustainable market ecosystem?

To get to the bottom of these questions, the three-part webinar series “PtX Lab Talk+ Technologies, policies and fuels for fossil-free maritime transport” is hosted in collaboration with Agora Verkehrswende and PtX Lab Lausitz.
