Emission of greenhouse during international transport by water

Publication Date Nov 13, 2015

Abstract

Emission of the basic greenhouse gases (CO 2 , CH 4 , N 2 O) from water transport carrying out the international transportation from the territory of the Russian Federation has been estimated. In 2013, total release of СО 2 , CH 4 , N 2 O amounted to 34.7 million ton of СО 2 - equivalent that is 5.7 times more than in 1990. Carbon dioxide was 99 % of the measured value; methane and nitrogen dioxide were 0.2 % and 0.8 % respectively. Thus far, a portion of releases related to the international transportation by water is rather insignificant - only 1.5 % of the cumulative emission of greenhouse gases of the Russian Federation. However, considering the trends of fuel consumption growth, we can expect its rise in the near future. Application of technical and operating measures for enhancement of power efficiency will allow us to reduce emission of greenhouse gases from the water transport.
