Environmental impact from sea transport from a life cycle perspective

The doctorate project aims at developing the methodology and tools for environmental assessment of fuel/energy supply within shipping. The initial phase has focused on a case study on different fossil based marine fuels from I life cycle perspective. The aim of this study is to increase the knowledge about the fuels but also to identify knowledge gaps and need for development of methodology assessment. The challenge of performing relevant comparisons between different types of fuels/energy sources for future shipping is a driving force.
