New techniques to monitor ship emissions at sea
Ships produce high emissions of nitrogen, sulphur oxides and particulate matter. Most of these occur close to shore, significantly degrading air-quality in coastal areas. In a global regulatory effort to reduce SOx emissions, a maximum 0.5 % fuel sulphur content is enforced. In this context, it is important to monitor emissions of vessels during their normal operation. The EU-funded SCIPPER project deploys next-generation measurement techniques to monitor emissions. It conducts real-world experimental campaigns with vessels in EU ports. The project aims to provide evidence on the performance and capacity of different techniques for shipping emissions monitoring and regulation enforcement. It also works to assess the impacts of shipping emissions on air quality under different regulatory enforcement scenarios.
