Fathom World update and podcast news
As usual the meeting of the marine environment protection committee at the IMO was political and slow paced, and they came up with some numbers which were criticised by some and welcomed by others.
But ship owners now have the CII & EEXI to deal with, and it is not going to be easy for everyone to comply with. The devil will really be in the detail, so to get under them I spoke to Edwin Pang at RINA for a special episode of the Aronnax Podcast.
