Product description

Approx. 90% of the worldwide international trade is covered by ships. However, ships cause severe damage to the environment: According to a study by the University of Delaware, ship exhaust into the atmosphere has been known to be responsible for up to 60,000 deaths per year since 2013 already. The 15 largest ships are claimed to produce more SO2 than all cars in the world together. In addition, large quantities of highly toxic substances that are meant to avoid biofouling of the ships’ surfaces are released into the water. Furthermore, huge amounts of energy are wasted due to ship hull friction against the water.
