Life cycle assessment of marine fuels

The doctorate project aims at developing the methodology and tools for environmental assessment of energy supply within shipping. In order to evaluate the environmental aspects of some of the existing and proposed fuels in a systems perspective, a comparative life cycle assessment (LCA) of a number of marine fuels is in progress. Also the possibility of using “end-of pipe” solutions like scrubbers and catalysts to reduce emissions is included.
