The HyMethship concept will be presented at the Danube Shipping and Tourism Conference in Belgrad on December 5, 2018
HyMethShip project activities are structured in eleven Work Packages (WPs) each of them divided into specific tasks, covering research and technological development, project management, dissemination and exploitation activities.
HyMethShip has been nominated for the Styrian PR Panther, which distinguishes outstanding public relations.
The workshop will screen the development, deployment, and operation of HyMethShip technology, and will identify dangers as compared to similar technology related claims and associated risks.
In the workshop it will be determined which life cycle phases will be recorded, where the system boundaries will be drawn and which technologies will be used as a benchmark.
Members of the General Assembly and the External Expert Advisory Board will attend the meeting in London on December 13, 2018.
HyMethShip wishes You all a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy – emission-reduced – New Year 2019!
On July 4-5, the kick-off meeting took place in Graz with all partners of the HyMethShip project. This is where the course for a successful project execution was set.
Shipping already accounts for roughly 80 percent of the kilometers required for freight transportation and leisure cruises are also increasing in popularity. According to the UN, ships are amongst the most important CO2 emitters. The Emma Mærsk, one of the largest container ships worldwide, produces as much CO2 on her yearly journeys from China to Europe as a mid-sized coal-fired power plant. 90 percent of ships are still fueled by heavy fuel oils, whose high sulfur content leads to very high SO2 emissions. All this confirms that urgent action needs to be taken.
On June 13 the HyMethShip project was presented at a press conference in Graz, Austria, which was met with a lot of interest from the media.
