As a follow up, the LP team has conducted further recording with the panellists where they covered the various questions that could not be covered due to the lack of time. These questions not only include the questions raised by the audience during registrations, but also the concerns and questions raised by the audience during the webinar itself.

In the following video, the host of the Webinar, Capt Anuj Velankar, talks with the Supercargo expert Richard Barnes of Lighthouse Maritime. Richard speaks of the various practical challenges related to the operating a chemical tanker. Among the various issues discussed are the problems with standardizing wall wash tests, the various pros and cons of spectrometer analysis, new regulations coming up in Jan 2021 and the way he sees the landscape of the chemical tanker industry changing in the near future.
