What's in YOUR Stack? 
The rapidly changing “airscape” for ship emissions

Co-Hosted by 
California State University Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime) and NAMEPA

January 11, 2019     |     1300-1800hrs
200 Maritime Academy Dr, Vallejo, California

Join us at Cal Maritime for an industry forum on the rapidly changing “airscape” for ship emissions. Not since the transference from sail to steam has the marine industry seen such a dramatic requirement to change its operational practices to meet regulatory and societal demands.

This seminar will examine:

  • What is the regulatory framework impacting for the next 10 years?
  • What are the challenges facing industry to meet these requirements and those of society?
  • What are the options available now and in the future?

The forum is offered at no charge and open to students, industry, conservation groups, faculty, and other interested stakeholders.

Register today to learn the way forward from leading industry experts.
