Initial scoping and project development from PPS Marine and Maritime Policy Specialist Dr Wassim Dbouk and the MCA's Assistant Director of Maritime Future Technologies, Ashley Stehr, has led to the creation of two 3-month placement opportunities to conduct a literature review on emission reduction technologies as applicable to the maritime industry.  PPS is proud to announce that Dr Lina Maria Zapata, postgraduate research student within Engineering and Physical Sciences (Centre for Environmental Science), and Natasha Easton, a Leverhulme Trust “Understanding Maritime Futures” Doctoral scholar within SMMI, will be the inaugural MCA research interns.

Lina and Natasha will be conducting a literature review on emission reduction technologies. They will approach the topic from two different angles which accord with their respective expertise, with the aim of providing a holistic understanding of the technologies. The placements were made possible thanks to funding from the UKRI Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Shell Shipping and Maritime. The outcomes of the work align clearly with Shell’s target of improving the efficiency of current and future ship designs to make the decarbonisation of large, ocean-going ships a realistic prospect in a shorter timescale.
