Air Emissions

Following our recently organised seminar and survey,

another interesting study discusses the relevant main options:

  • Low sulphur fuels (max 0.5%)
  • Scrubbers
  • Alternative Fuels (LNG, Methanol)

lNTERCARGO hosted a presentation session delivered by Lloyd’s Register at our London office on 24 May (see details and presentation here).

Also Members please login to see the results of our Indicative Survey among the seminar attendees (about 25 representatives of Full & Associate member companies) on below questions:

Question 1: In 2020, will the availability of max 0.5% Sulphur fuels be enough to meet the shipping industry needs?

Question 2: Best solution for existing dry bulkers in view of 2020:

Question 3: Best solution for Newbuilding dry bulkers in view of 2020:

Question 4: Will scrubbers be a cost competitive option against the use of max 0.5% Sulphur fuels?

Question 5: By 2020, will manufacturers/shipyards have enough capacity to meet scrubber installation needs?

INTERCARGO and its Round Table partners have submitted the attached two papers:

  • "Elements for inclusion in the IMO strategy including "Aspirational Objectives" " for consideration at the IMO Intersessional meeting of the Working Group on Reduction of GHG emissions from ships (26-30 June 2017).

The co-sponsors wish to share some ideas on the elements for inclusion in the IMO strategy for CO2 reduction, and the initial strategy to be adopted in 2018, including some ambitious "Aspirational Objectives" that the Organization might consider on behalf of international shipping. The co-sponsors emphasize that any objectives agreed should be non-binding in character and must not imply any kind of commitment or intention to place a binding cap on the sector's total CO2 emissions, or on the CO2 emissions of individual ships.

  • "REDUCTION OF GHG EMISSIONS FROM SHIPS: Elements for inclusion in the IMO Strategy" for consideration at IMO MEPC 71 (3-7 July 2017).

The co-sponsors comment on document MEPC 71/7/8 and inform about their own submission to ISWG-GHG 1 that includes some "Aspirational Objectives" that the Organization might consider on behalf of international shipping, but which should be non-binding in character and must not imply any kind of commitment or intention to place a binding cap on the sector's total CO2 emissions, or on the CO2 emissions of individual ships.
