How to control sulfur emissions

How to control sulfur emissions

03-10-2014 14:00:00


On Monday the Ecological Council will present a solution on how to inspect if ships emit too much sulfur at a conference with the Danish Shipowners Association, and how to easily adopt effective sanctions against it.

"There may be put a measuring unit up, which measures CO2 and sulfur from ships. It can be connected to the ships AIS, which always shows the position, speed and heading, of ships. AIS will also show how much the ship pollutes, "says Kåre Press-Kristensen, a civil engineer and senior advisor in the Ecological Council.

If the ship does not comply, it may be detained in a port for five days. Carriers insure admittedly against delays to customers, but insurance will not pay if the delay is due to lawlessness. Therefore, a detention be quite an effective sanction, the Ecological Council thinks.

The conference "Cleaner and more energy efficient shipping" will take place on Monday from pm. 8.30 to 22 at the Hilton at the airport in Copenhagen.
