BSR InnoShip supports the Baltic Sea countries and the key maritime stakeholders to jointly decrease and prevent adverse atmospheric emissions of shipping and port operations in the form of promising emission reduction equipment as well as best practices in major new infrastructure. The cooperation aims at encouraging voluntary measures and economic incentives for low-emission solutions at the local, national, and Baltic Sea catchment level.
Through the BSR InnoShip, Baltic ships, ports and cities will be offered concrete tools for developing feasibility, investment, and competitiveness planning for adopting innovative technology and low-emission solutions. About 5-12.5 percent of deposited nitrogen comes from Baltic ship emissions, and depositions of nitrogen are associated with eutrophication, so these efforts will help to address this nitrogen deposition.
