  • Bid to cut 25% of UK transport emissions by 2020

    Transport’s contribution to climate change could be reduced by a quarter by 2020 according to new research published this week. The research comes as the Climate Change Bill passes into law and the Committee on Climate Change prepares to release its proposal for UK carbon budgets up to 2022. Transport is likely to be a key target: it accounts for 28% of UK carbon dioxide emissions and with ...

  • Modelling marine exhaust emissions in the Baltic Sea

    A new tool used to investigate exhaust emissions of marine vessels has been developed and applied to shipping in the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea is a busy maritime region with 3500-5000 ships operating in the area every month. Emissions from shipping contribute significantly to atmospheric pollution, leading to health and environmental problems. In May 2006, the Baltic Sea was the first area ...

  • Shipping emissions can lead to high local ocean acidification

    Strong acids formed from shipping emissions can produce seasonal ‘hot spots’ of ocean acidification, a recent study finds. These hot spots, in ocean areas close to busy shipping lanes, could have negative effects on local marine ecology and commercially farmed seafood species. Oceans have become more acidic since pre-industrial times. The average global ocean pH – which ...
