WORKING PAPER 2023-26 - Port of Yangpu emissions inventory report using the goPEIT model
7 November 2023
Determining the port’s baseline emissions profile and possible trajectory of future emissions through the use of the goPEIT tool can assist the port in making environmentally responsible development plans. [...] 6 ICCT WORKING PAPER 2023-26 | PORT OF YANGPU EMISSIONS INVENTORY REPORT USING THE GOPEIT MODEL Results This section details the results of our port emissions inventory for Port of Yangpu in 2019 using the goPEIT tool. [...] The most active ship types in terms of annual distance traveled within the Port of Yangpu in 2019 were bulk carriers and chemical tankers, consistent with the primary cargo types handled by the port of that year. [...] A user needs to enter the distance and speed of the vessel in the cruise, reduced speed, and maneuver phases, as well as the time spent anchoring and at berth to be able to use the detailed option. [...] In cases where the entered vessel does not exist in the internal database, and goPEIT cannot calculate emissions for that particular vessel, we recommend taking the following actions: » Exclude emissions of that vessel from the inventory, or » Estimate the fuel consumption of the vessel visits separately and include that information on the Harbor Craft page.
