New cooperation project with Wallenius Marine

Wallenius Marine and companies within the Soya Group are ambitious when it comes to sustainable development, but the conservative shipping sector have in general very slow progress towards sustainability. For example, recent studies from SMHI claims that the sector emits more Carbon dioxide than the flights in and to/from Sweden. This new project is financed by BTH and Vinnova as a PAUS project and aims at clarifying how the shipping sector and Wallenius relates to strategic sustainable development with a focus on fuels and retrofitting of existing ships, develop cooperations regarding student projects, and pave the way for future research projects that could involve more partners to agree on a path towards sustainability. SustainTrans researcher Sven Borén will manage the project and will during 6 months visit Wallenius Marine and their related business.
