ExxonMobil launches 'Beyond 2020' podcast series

(IRVING, Texas) — The International Maritime Organization’s 0.5 percent sulfur cap has triggered far-reaching changes to vessel operations. However, this is not the end of the journey – the IMO has also outlined an ambition to cut greenhouse gases emissions down by at least 50 percent by 2050, compared with 2008 levels.

To help unravel the facts, ExxonMobil invited a panel of maritime experts to evaluate the likely impact of changing emission regulations in a series of in-depth podcasts. The first chapter, available now, explores the changing fuels landscape and the feasibility of the alternative fuels.

Facilitator Richard Meade, managing editor of Lloyd's List, leads the debate featuring Luca Volta, marine fuels venture manager, ExxonMobil; Lars Malmbratt, general manager of Stena Bulk Bunker Procurement; and Eirik Nyhus, director of environment, DNV GL.
