"Focusing on Solutions" Maritime Event
The maritime industry is experiencing the most aggressive regulatory change in history, with the adoption of a global sulphur cap of .5%, adoption of the ballast water management convention, a roadmap and strategy for greenhouse gases, including mandatory reporting of fuel efficiency by 2019, a NECA proposal for the Baltic and North Seas, restriction of HFO in the Arctic and more! Join your industry colleagues as we "Focus on Solutions" for these and other challenges facing the marine industry.
