Controlling greenhouse gases: For love or money?

ByPAUL GUNTON

Ship designers and operators have one weapon in their battle to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs): they must cut fuel consumption. This chapter outlines some of the options available to them to do just that. All the techniques are available now and are in use to varying degrees. The latter part of this chapter looks at potential developments for the future, exploring technologies that are yet to make a signifi cant impact, but the other technologies discussed in these pages are widely known.
