Abstract

There is really no debate about the superior comparative efficiency of ships with respect to fuel consumption when calculated per deadweight tonne along routes of similar length. However, the emission figures calculated per deadweight tonne is only relevant for bulk transports, and fuel consumption per cargo tonne is quite different for typical short sea shipping services based on container or RoRo technologies. Further, other emissions to air, like sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and particles, are typically very high for shipping – especially when no abatement technologies are applied.
