Environmental Benefits and Best Practices of Shore Connection Technology
When it comes to protecting the environment, port communities are on the front lines. The combustion of high-sulfur-content marine fuels in port areas is a major contributor to air pollution and the associated impact on human health and the environment. Local, national, and international regulations are increasingly putting pressure on the maritime industries to control air pollution. This paper examines shore connection technologies as a way to curb the air pollution generated by maritime shipping activities.
