Use More Efficient, Better Ships
M/V Auriga Leader
"The shipping industry is cooperating closely with governments on a host of initiatives, including identifying the best feasible ballast-water-treatment technology for installation on ships; using low-sulfur fuel in emission-control areas; assessing how emission-scrubbing technologies could be applied to allow cleaner burning of marine fuels; improved ship design and other measures to reduce CO2 emissions; applying new hull coatings to improve efficiency, reduce emissions, and reduce hull fouling; establishing no-discharge zones in environmentally sensitive areas; and reducing the risk of whale strikes."
-- Anne Marie Kappel, vice president of the World Shipping Council
