Limiting global warming requires the maritime sector to transition to a more efficient and sustainable operation.

Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, such as carbon dioxide and methane is vital to limit the global temperature rise (IPCC, 2021).

Several legislative initiatives are in effect or are being discussed, including the IMO GHG strategy and the FuelEU Maritime initiative.

The IADC article discusses the potential of waste heat recovery (WHR) technologies to reduce the fuel consumption of dredging vessels.
