dc.descriptionThis "TFG" is divided in three basic parts. First one describes the impact of maritime industry on global warming with emphasis on carbon dioxide emissions and clarifies some basic concepts related to environmental problematic. Second part reviews current carbon dioxide regulations provided by different entities with focus on energy efficiency regulations provided by IMO. Third part describes past, present and future projects of alternative means of propulsion in shipping industry. It evaluates convenience of these projects in terms of balance between social benefit and environmental cost.

dc.relation.referencesObjective of present thesis is to identify global impact of maritime industry on the environmental problematic and solutions provided by government and private sector to reduce the same. This document is divided in three main sections which describe the CO2 and global warming problematic, provide overview of current regulations adopted by different entities with focus on IMO2 energy efficiency project and finally describe energy efficiency solutions from shipbuilders and shipping companies. Additionally author tries to map global awareness of environmental issue within industry and its consciousness about steps needed to be taken to improve ecological footprint of the modern shipping. A method used to achieve above proposed objectives was investigation based on internet resources mainly from trustworthy web pages of institutions, governments, entities, intern universities sites and similar sources to guarantee quality of the information and its undeniable content. The reason why I preferred to the use web sources instead of books its evident. Web content provides updated information hence considerable time saving is obtained and it is assured that the newest data about the issue are available at any moment.
