Sea Ahead and Blue Tech present the Decarbonization of the Maritime Industry

June 09 2020 @ 11:00 AM - September 06 2020 @ 12:00 PM

SeaAhead and Peace Boat US are working together to host two Ocean Innovation 'Free Swims' (June 2 and 9) during UN World Oceans Week 2020. The theme this year is "Innovation for a Sustainable Ocean."  We'll hear from sustainable seafood innovators and talk about efforts to decarbonize the shipping industry. And we'll of course leave time for the networking sessions that our Free Swims have become known for. 

'Free Swims' are open forums that allow ocean innovators to connect, exchange strategies and resources, get support, and share challenges. 


June 9: Decarbonizing maritime transportation and shipping 

  • Mark Huang - Co-founder and Managing Director at SeaAhead
  • Maho Takahashi - Senior Business Development Manager at Peace Boat Ecoship
  • Nikos Petrakakos - Director, Head of Environmental Innovation at Seabury Maritime Capital
  • Steffen Knodt - Wartsila
