Seventh Biennial Conference on the Marine Transportation System Innovative Science and Technologies Toward Greater Sustainability is organized by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering  and Medicine in partnership with the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System. The conference aims to disseminate and discuss the results of current research, practitioner experiences, and stewardship challenges with respect to the environmental sustainability of the U.S. marine transportation system (MTS). The conference will seek to identify research needs, barriers and potential progress related to overall environmental sustainability and decarbonization strategies including: the introduction of alternative fuels, vessel and port electrification, regulatory and governance reform, green technology implementation, beneficial and alternative use of dredged materials, and other environmental sustainability strategies. Particular emphasis will be placed on lifecycle impacts, infrastructure requirements, vessel fleet considerations, and the necessary collaboration required among all MTS-related stakeholders and sectors.

Speakers will present recent progress in scientific and technological solutions related to environmental sustainability and the associated research being conducted in government, academia, and the private sector.
