Life cycle environmental impacts of hybrid power options in deep-sea bulk shipping

Evert Bouman

Norwegian University of Science and Technology

Evert Bouman is a researcher at the Industrial Ecology Programme at the Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU). He completed his PhD in Industrial Ecology in 2015 at NTNU and holds an MSc in both Industrial Ecology and Chemical Engineering from Leiden University and Delft University of Technology. During his PhD, he worked on the environmental impact assessment of low-carbon electricity generation in combination with power market modelling. Currently, Evert is responsible for developing a life-cycle based assessment model to aid in the design of environmentally friendly maritime transport. In this model, life cycle assessment (LCA) is applied and combined  with shipping route statistics to capture accurate operational profiles that feed data into the LCA model. 


International ship transport accounts for a significant amount of annual anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, though emissions per unit ship transport are relatively low compared to other transport modes. However,... [ view full abstract ]
