General Overview

It is widely recognised that, along with measures to increase in the energy efficiency of today’s ships, for the shipping industry to rapidly decarbonise in line with our internationally agreed targets for GHG emissions reduction, we must transition to lower and eventually zero carbon fuels.  


As a result, the industry is faced with a significant challenge, which has led Maritime Industry Australia Ltd (MIAL) and the LNG Marine Fuel Institute (LNG MFI) to join forces to advance discussions on decarbonisation solutions, which will kick off with a unique series of webinars on Maritime Future Fuels and Energy Efficiency

LCA 101

Date: 11 Aug 2020 - 3pm AEST, 1pm AWST

Summary:Life cycle analysis (LCA, also known as life-cycle assessment,) is an essential tool in the global effort to reduce GHG emissions. It is a methodology for assessing environmental impacts associated with all the stages of the life-cycle (cradle to grave) of a product, process or service. An LCA is used to determine a fuel’s GHG emissions.

This webinar is to provide you with the knowledge of what LCA is and the framework. After the webinar, you will be able to understand and critically analyse LCA.

Summary: Since the beginning of the maritime industry, there have been one means of power, and over the centuries, there have been three transitions, from sail to coal to fuel oil. The drive of today’s transition is to reduce GHG emissions. It is unlikely that the result of this transition will not be one dominate source of power. There are several alternatives in development that have different advantages and disadvantages. This webinar will provide an updated look at these fuels.
