Sulphur emissions by ships - Transport Committee

Sulphur dioxide emissions are falling across Europe, but emissions from shipping continue to rise. The shipping industry is therefore being targeted with tighter limits, both internationally and by the European Commission (the Commission). These limits will have significant cost implications for ship operators. 2. Home. Home. Encouraging and facilitating the efficient reduction of harmful emissions to air from shipping. ESPO - European Sea Ports Organisation - Welcome. The global economic cycle and satellite-derived NO2 trends over shipping lanes. The case for scrubbers. Chris Leigh-Jones From July 2010, ships entering northern European waters will be required to produce emissions no higher than the equivalent of burning a 1.0% sulphur marine fuel. Continuing to burn high-sulphur bunker fuel, the high-value, highly polluting fuel of choice for many years, without any form of emissions reduction technology is no longer a viable option.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) decreed in October 2008 that shipoperators in these Emission Control Areas (ECAs) have two options: to use more costly cleaner fuel, or fit scrubber technology onboard the vessel with the capability to remove sufficient sulphur (as SOx) derived from IFO180 and IFO380 to meet the new emissions regulation. The economic angle For owners weighing up their fuelling options, meeting environmental challenges may not be viewed with quite the same gusto as it was in January 2008, given the current financial turmoil in world markets.

International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL)

The MARPOL Convention was adopted on 2 November 1973 at IMO. The Protocol of 1978 was adopted in response to a spate of tanker accidents in 1976-1977. As the 1973 MARPOL Convention had not yet entered into force, the 1978 MARPOL Protocol absorbed the parent Convention. The combined instrument entered into force on 2 October 1983.

In 1997, a Protocol was adopted to amend the Convention and a new Annex VI was added which entered into force on 19 May 2005. ISSUU. DNV Maritime.
