Global Maritime Energy Efficiency Partnerships (GloMEEP), a joint project by Global Environment Facility (GEF), UN Development Programme (UNDP), and the International Maritime Organization (IMO), started training on ship fuel data collection at China on Wednesday (14 November).
The GloMEEP training course, the first of its kind, was held in Hangzhou. Some 25 participants learned how to develop a ship fuel oil consumption data collection plan, verify the data collected and how to report data to IMO. The workshop was hosted by the China Maritime Safety Administration.
From 1 January 2019 onwards, ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above will have to collect consumption data for each type of fuel oil they use.
These ships account for approximately 85% of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from international shipping.
The data collected will be kept in a database hosted by IMO and will provide a firm basis on which future decisions on additional energy-efficiency measures, over and above those already adopted by IMO, can be made.
GloMEEP is a joint GEF-UNDP-IMO project, run by IMO, supporting the uptake and implementation of energy-efficiency measures for shipping, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

‘Therefore, representing the players of the Malaysian bunker industry, we sincerely hope that this matter can be refined and reconsidered immediately so that all parties benefit together,’ says communication.
