Summary

 
Object and purpose of research. This paper discusses the challenge of making eco-friendly marine fuels readily available. The purpose of this study is to estimate the prospects of such fuels as low-sulfur fuel oil, LNG, etc., in Russian shipping industry
Subject matter and methods.The study discusses main technological and organizational approaches to introduction of such MARPOL-approved eco-protection measures for ships as scrubbers and eco-friendly fuels to Russian shipping practice
Main results. The paper gives the projections for implementation of eco-friendly fuels and scrubbers aboard Russian ships and vessels.
Conclusion. The authors suppose that introduction of LNG as fuel to Russian shipping practice would reduce SOX and NOX emissions, as well as provide sufficient fuel supply and replenishment infrastructure for up to 100 newly built Russian LNG-powered sea-going and inland navigation ships, which will certainly reduce environmental footprint of Russian shipping
