Due to changes in international regulations and technology review CSI updates its methodology.
- New IMO EEDI reference from 2020: In line with the next EEDI phase for energy efficiency of new ships, CSI is changing its reference for scoring on CO2 which will apply to all ships.
- Global sulphur cap of 0,5% from 2020: The reference for scoring in CSI will be below 0,5% sulphur.
- Following a technology review (non regulatory related) there will be an increased reward for ‘air seal’ technology in the stern tube. Verification requirement: VGP (US EPA) approved.
- The possibility to gain PM scores by scrubber usage will be removed due to studies indicating poor reduction of the most harmful particles (PM < 10 µm).
Details will be included in the new Methodology & Reporting Guidelines published 1st of January 2020. Any questions can be directed to the Clean Shipping Index secretariat.
