Session 2 Karin Andersson

  1. 1. Environmental  research – activities within  Eco ShipKarin AnderssonMarin miljöteknikChalmers
  2. 2. • What is Ecoship and sustainability?  • Challenges for Ecoship• Research groups and projects• Maritime environment reserach in the  world • Future research areas in Ecoship?• Current initiatives and reserach networks (Björn Södahl)
  3. 3. Eco Ship?
  4. 4. TidtabellArbetsmiljöEkonomiPålitlighet….
  5. 5. Complex systems But also knowledge ofMany criteria the partsNeed for systemsapproach fordecision making
  6. 6. ”Sustainability means meeting the needs of today without reducing the quality of life for future generations”
  7. 7. sustainability?According to Agenda 21 – Resource use and environmental impact But also – Social and economic dimensions – The role of major groups
  8. 8. Thematic areas for cross‐disciplinaryLighthouse research projects Desired PerformanceThematic research examplesarea/program Chalmers Shipping & Marine Technology Computational Hydrodynamics Environment and Sustainable Ship Maritime Environment resources Propulsion LCA, g/tonkm Ecoship Applied Hydrodynamics Machinery Systems Marine Structures Transport Efficiency Time, resource, economy Cargoship Ship Design Seakeeping Marine Transport Systems Human centered work Effectiveness, Efficiency, Ergoship Navigation and Satisfaction Communication Ship Work Environment and Safety Maritime Safety Safety Safeship Human Factors Risk control Gothenburg University School of Business, Economics & Law World trade and International Shipping Economy Businesship Logistics and Cargo handling, profitability Financial Reports and Analyses Maritime Law
  9. 9. Ecoship main research groups todayChalmers – shipping and marine technology• Applied hydrodynamics• Maritime environment• and in contact with other groups….GU – school of business, economics and law
  10. 10. Related competences at  Chalmers and GUAt Shipping and marine technology– Ship design– Ship work environment and safetyAt Chalmers departments– Energy and environment– Civil and environmental engineering– Applied mechanics– Materials and manufacturing technology– Product and production developmentAt Göteborg University– Analytical and marine chemistry– Sven Lovén reserach centre– Institute for Marine Reserach– ……
  11. 11. And to support the studies• Data base on ship emissions, energy/fuel use, operation  etc• Close contact with problem owers – Identification of research issues – Make measurements under operation possible – Collect data – Case studies
  12. 12. Challenges in focus in Ecoship: • Resource use – Energy efficiency potential – Energy management – Energy sources – Energy efficient design• Environmental impact – Identify and quantify sources in technical system and effects of emission  abatement technology • Related to emissions to air – CO2, NOx, SO2, particles, VOC… • Related to emissions to water – Ballast water, Sanitary water, Scrubbing,  antifouling paint……• Organisational aspects – Policy, legislation, organisation and management tools – Logistics
  13. 13. Ecoship research projects
  14. 14. Computational hydrodynamics Main objective: Energy efficiency and optimisation• New methods (SHIPFLOW)  – Overlapping moving grids forseakeeping and manoeuvring – Basic LES theory• Applications – Influence of fouling on resistance – Far‐field wash waves – Propellers at extreme off‐design conditions – Cavitation physics – Basic cavitation prediction: foils – Cavitation prediction: propellers – Propeller‐induced noise and vibrations (fluid/structure interaction)• Automatic optimisation – Optimisation of aftbodies and flow control devices – Optimisation of hull‐propellerrudder interaction
  15. 15. Maritime environment• Environmental impact from sea transport from a life cycle  perspective – Energy supply chain – fuel selection, KA, SB – Emission abatement, HW, MM, EF – Energy efficiency , HL, KA – Energy management, HJ, BS• Environmental Risk Assessment – Risks from “environmental time bombs” in the old ship wrecks,  IMH, FL
  16. 16. Relation technology ‐ nature– Measurements and evaluation of emissions to air from  ship engines as a function of (abatement) technology  and operating modes. • NOx ,  SO2, particles… EF, HW, – Mapping of particulate emissions regionally, MA– Studies of technical potential and environmental  impact from environmental technology  • biofouling abatement by ozone, SL • sea water SO2 scrubbing, IMH • Effect of NOx reduction technology, KA
  17. 17. Maritime environment  and school of business,  economics and law• Impact of regulatory tools, scenario studies HW, KA, SL• at School of business, economics and law,  ZN, FL, ...
  18. 18. Reserach within maritime  environment internationally• Many groups within marine science• Few at technical universities – Univ of Delaware – Corbett et al – Gauss mbH – Univ of Bremen – ...• Consultants – IVL – DNV – Lloyds – ...
  19. 19. Future areas of reserarch?• Intermodal transports – environmental and  energy optimisation• Energy efficiency system modeling• Influence of organisation on environmental impact and resuource use• ……
