- Apr 24, 2018-

According to Reuters, the German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd recently announced plans to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 20% compared to 2016 by 2020 to help support the reduction of global shipping industry emissions by half. butt weld elbows


The transportation industry has been lagging behind in efforts to reach emission reduction agreements. Although the shipping industry and the aviation industry do not fall within the scope covered by the Paris Global Climate Agreement in 2015, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), as the UN agency responsible for regulating ship pollution, reached an agreement this month to put carbon dioxide into use by 2050. Emissions were reduced to 2008 levels.


As the world's fifth-largest containerization company, Hapag-Lloyd said in a statement recently that the company has reduced its fleet's CO2 emissions by 46% between 2007 and 2016. welding overlay flanges


Rolf Habben Jansen, chief executive of Hapag-Lloyd, stated that the most important thing is that all market participants are moving in the same direction and Hapag-Lloyd will do everything in its power to achieve this goal. By acquiring Arab ships, Hapag-Lloyd has modernized its fleet and turned to more efficient ships.


In addition, CSG's Crawford Steamship also expressed its commitment to increase carbon emission efficiency by 30% between 2015 and 2025. The company selected multiple fleets and engine optimization solutions, including the use of LNG power for new 22,000 TEU container ships. pipe fittings
