Descripción del proyecto

Reducir las emisiones en el transporte marítimo

El transporte marítimo es una fuente importante de contaminación marina y atmosférica, así como de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, las cuales, de no tomarse medidas eficaces, se prevé que aumenten considerablemente. Para abordar esta cuestión, el proyecto EMERGE, financiado con fondos europeos, tiene por objeto estudiar los efectos de las diferentes soluciones para reducir las emisiones del transporte marítimo en Europa y desarrollar estrategias eficaces para disminuir el impacto ambiental y climático de dicho transporte. Para ello, se requerirán mediciones y modelizaciones en buques reales, a lo largo de las principales rutas marítimas y en regiones marinas europeas sensibles. El proyecto proporcionará a los interesados y a los responsables de la toma de decisiones orientación y recomendaciones para favorecer el transporte marítimo sostenible a medio y largo plazo.

Objetivo

The objectives of EMERGE are (i) to quantify and evaluate the effects of potential emission reduction solutions for shipping in Europe for several scenarios, and (ii) to develop effective strategies and measures to reduce the environmental impacts of shipping. EMERGE objectives will be achieved through real-world test cases involving measurements and modelling on actual vessels, along main shipping routes and in sensitive European marine regions. Given our unique capabilities, the EMERGE consortium is the only group that can model real world emissions of shipping to air and water for the whole of Europe.
The project will collect and synthesize experimental evidence on waste streams to water and emissions to air originating from ships, for different emission control technologies. The measurements will focus on abatement techniques and will include emissions to, and concentrations in water, air and marine biota. The project will especially investigate how effectively available scrubbers reduce the effects of key pollutants.
EMERGE includes five geographical case studies, in different ecologically vulnerable regions, and a mobile onboard case study. The case study regions are (i) Eastern Mediterranean (ii) Northern Adriatic Sea, (iii) the region surrounding the Lagoon of Aveiro, (iv) the Solent Strait and (v) the Öresund Strait. The mobile onboard case study will be deployed in various European sea regions.
EMERGE will develop an integrated modelling framework to assess the combined impacts of shipping emissions on the aquatic and atmospheric environments, and the effects on marine ecosystems. The assessment will include the benefits and costs of control and mitigation options affecting water quality, air pollution exposure, health impact, climate forcing and bioaccumulation of pollutants. EMERGE will provide recommendations and guidance for stakeholders and decision-makers on cost-beneficial options for sustainable use of shipping on the medium and long term.
