As a green marine technology provider, TECO 2030’s solutions will have a positive environmental impact. A change for the better.
Shipping accounts for 90% of global trade and roughly 2.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Global shipping volumes are expected to continue to grow. At the same time, we urgently need to reduce emissions and other environmental impact.
In order to achieve this, TECO 2030 believes we need two-step strategy. First, we will continually improve current technology to significantly reduce emissions from combustion engines.
We reduce the environmental impact through available technologies with direct impact on particulate emissions. The major reductions include sulphur dioxide, particulate matter, black carbon and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. These particles aren’t only damaging our environment. They are also increasing the numbers of premature deaths each year. Today it is estimated that roughly 5 million people die annually.
The next step is introducing renewable energy and zero emissions, based on fuel cells powered by hydrogen. Hydrogen is the only zero emission technology appropriate for heavy-duty maritime applications, and will be TECO 2030’s main focus moving forward.
We care for our oceans and air quality. Life both above and under the waterline is of importance to us. Join the movement of creating tomorrow’s emission free shipping industry, today!
