UK Space Agency All Set for Satellite Tracking of Ship Emissions


  • The UK Space Agency is set to fund a project seeking to track ships’ emissions using satellite imagery.
  • A joint project between Redshift Associates and the University of Leicester will be one of five firms receiving funding from the UK Space Agency via its SPRINT program.

A recent news published in Ship and Bunker deals with the idea of UK Space Agency funding Satellite to track ship emissions.

Collaboration and development of analytics

“This collaboration will develop analytics to track the carbon and pollution emissions of ships, with a new approach to establish emission audits of shipping fleets and their individual vessels,” the government said.

“The project builds upon previous work developing analytics solutions for ports and harbours, extending this to coastal and international waters.”
