Shipping and ports represent two significant yet largely overlooked sources in air emissions. As China continues its campaign to cure its air quality woe, reducing emissions from shipping and ports become an increasingly important task. This presentation reviews air emissions from shipping and ports, examines best practices of emissions reduction elsewhere, highlights current opportunities to reduce emissions from shipping and ports in China, and discusses how to achieve emissions reduction from these two sectors in China.

Dr. Haifeng Wang is a senior researcher at the International Council on Clean Transportation, a Washington-DC based think tank that specializes in reducing emissions from the transportation sector.  Dr. Wang focuses on the technology assessment and cost benefit analysis of reducing air emissions from shipping and ports. Before joining ICCT in early 2010, Dr. Wang finished his PhD education in reducing CO2 emissions from international shipping in University of Delaware. He is also a MBA from Darden School of Business at University of Virginia.
