Second IMO Symposium on low- and zero-carbon fuels to be held on 21 October

15 Sep 2022

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) will be organising its second symposium focusing on alternative low and zero carbon fuels on Friday (21 October).

The focus of the symposium will be on “Ensuring a just and inclusive transition towards low-carbon shipping“.

The event will be held from 9.30 to 15.30 (UTC+1) and will be held at the IMO Headquarters or can be accessed remotely. 

The symposium will consist of three main blocks:

  • Overcoming barriers to global access to low- and zero-carbon marine fuels
  • Opportunities of the fuel transition for developing countries
  • How to accommodate a just and equitable transition towards low-carbon shipping

Some of the highlights of the event include discussions on:

  • Improving the global availability of future marine fuels through the development of renewable energy bunkering infrastructure, 
  • Price considerations of alternative low- and zero-carbon marine fuels and
  • Involvement of developing countries in inclusive route-based action plans: enhancing global availability of low-carbon marine fuels and technologies

Note: Registration for the event can be done here and more information on the symposium can be here
