Global warming potential (GWP) is the heat absorbed by any greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, as a multiple of the heat that would be absorbed by the same mass of carbon dioxide (CO2). The GWP is 1 for CO2. For other gases it depends on the gas and how long they remain in the atmosphere.
Each greenhouse gas (GHG) has a different global warming potential (GWP) and persists for a different length of time in the atmosphere. The three main greenhouse gases are;
These gases are highly prevalent in marine air pollution and are now being voluntarily reported by many shipowners. Emsys Maritime has further developed its unique mass emissions reporting capability to incorporate each of these gases and provide mass emissions inventory per voyage or between specific timeframes. The reports also include the CO2E calculations as per the IPCC methodology.
