A rapidly developing range of articles from across the shipping industry continue to propose new technologies, fuels, and measures for decarbonizing the maritime transport sector. However, it is unclear how any new pollution-related regulation from IMO or any national environmental protection agency may drive tangible change in how vessels operate. The values of retrofitting and new-build innovation are being challenged and re-evaluated on a weekly basis. What combination of engineering and information technology can assure the quality and performance are maintained and improved? What current understandings around fuel/engine performance efficiency, ship bunkering strategies, and rapid detection of deviations/anomalies may create a basis for a greener future in the immediate short-term?
