A new publication from Korean Register (KR) looks at the latest green technologies and global regulations for shipping.

It features KR’s insights and in-depth analysis of current maritime decarbonisation trends by KR experts. Topics covered included ship designs, alternative fuels, regulations and KR research.

KR Chairman and CEO Lee Hyungchul said: “Geographically driven GHG initiatives introduced by various national and regional regulators such as the EU’s Fit for 55 will make it difficult to envisage the future regulatory developments.”

He notes that the biggest challenge in decarbonising shipping is to make a sound and effective strategic plan amidst an overwhelming amount of information available.

Features in the new publication include Greenhouse Gas Regulation and Choosing the Right Green Fuel (Lim Sunghwan, KR SVP), Marine Fuel and Life Cycle Assessment (Ha Seungman, KR Senior Surveyor) and Introduction of EU Fit for 55 and Strategic Decarbonisation Measures (Kim Jinhyung, KR Principal Surveyor).

Song Kanghyun, KR Head/SVP KR Decarbonisation said:  “There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding decarbonisation, and the shipping and shipbuilding industry are putting their best efforts into making the right choice. With the regular publication of KR Decarbonisation Magazine, we will assist our customers in making their best decisions, while serving as a channel for sharing the latest information and strengthening collaborative relationships between maritime stakeholders.”
