Article on NOx and SOx cap and trade awarded

Zoi Nikopoulou, Professor Kevin Cullinane and Professor Arne Jensen at Gothenburg School of Economics, Business and Law have been awarded for SAGE Best Paper Prize 2013 for their article: "The role of a cap-and-trade market in reducing NOx and SOx emissions: Prospects and benefits for ships within the Northern European ECA".

The paper makes an economic assessment of how a cap and trade market for NOx and SOx emissions would impact the shipping industry, and would ultimately help in facilitating the deployment of emissions abatement technology within the sector.
