Sea Tech Week® 2022: Water's on the Agenda

Sea Tech Week® announces its full conference program of panel discussions and technical sessions. Registration for the 13th edition of the event in September is open for attendees.

NEW YORK and TORONTO , July 21, 2022 /CNW/ — For the first time since 2018, over 1,000 stakeholders across business, academia and governmental institutions from across the world will convene in person to shape the future of maritime.

This year’s event focuses strongly on the environment, exploring smarter and greener solutions for maritime transport, energy and tech and will also celebrate women’s work in marine science and technology. It will offer delegates many ways to exchange ideas, challenge each other’s views and connect through: 

Highlights : sustainable ports, energies & transports.

Towards The Definition Of Port Ecology And Ecological Port: questioning both the technical system, able to respond to environmental issues, and the capacity of the socio-system to initiate adaptation dynamics. Ports have a role to play in the shipping green revolution, and their metabolism needs an interdisciplinary approach.

This session is convened by Institut France-Québec Maritime (FranceCanada)

Sustainable Polymer Materials For Marine Applications: reducing the environmental impact of floating vessels and their equipment with recyclable thermoplastic composites, compostable biosourced polymers and fibers – or even completely biodegradable materials (with more limited options).

Greener Maritime Transports: trends, innovative solutions and opportunities through bilateral French/Norwegian cooperation: decarbonation of the Norwegian Maritime industry, and greener propulsion solutions (hydrogen, ammonia, hybrid, sail, retrofit, etc – for ferries and cargos).

Opportunities Offered By Hydrogene In The Maritime World: maritime and port territorial loops for renewable hydrogen (with focus on the Hylias & Transrade projects), H2 production with MRE energy on port infrastructures for local needs and building Hydrogen-powered ships

New Fuels: Behavior In Aquatic Environments And Responses To Accidental Spills: behavior and risks of maritime transportation for new fuels (ammonia; Low Sulphur Fuel Oils (LSFO, VLSFO & ULSFO), hydrotated vegetable oil, liquefied natural gas; etc), whether used for ship propulsion or distribution plant supply.
