CIMAC,  the global  association of  the  Internal  Combustion Engines  Industry,  has  just  published two new  CIMAC white papers  entitled  “White Paper  3:  Efficiencies  and Maturities  of  (Net)  Zero  Carbon Fuel  Pathways”  and “White Paper  4: Importance  of  a  Well-to-Wake  Approach.”  

In these white papers, CIMAC  reiterates  the  need  for  (net)  zero  or  zero  carbon  fuels  as  necessary  steps  to  achieve  the  required  GHG emission  reductions  in  maritime  shipping.  

While  the  two  white  papers  and  the  CIMAC  position  published  earlier  outline the bigger  picture of  the current  alternative fuels  debate in  maritime shipping,  White Paper  3 now  supports  the previous white papers  by  giving an overview  of  current  and projected maturities  and energy  efficiencies  of  the discussed technologies  and fuel  pathways.  

Subsequently,  White  Paper  4 builds  on White Paper  3 and asserts  why  a well-to-wake  perspective  is  essential  when  assessing  alternative  fuels  and  the  respective  policies  in  maritime  shipping. 

Both  white  papers  are  issued  by  the  Greenhouse  Gas  strategy  group  and are  available  on  the  CIMAC  website  through this link.
