  • Marine Industry experience with Aalborg Industries

    Port Authorities and Governing Bodies state that a ship cannot emit smoke of >20% opacity for more than 3 minutes when in port. The IMO set similar limits for on-board incinerators. The DSL-220 Opacity Monitor has been used successfully to measure smoke emissions from diesel engines, incinerators and boilers on board ship ensuring that environmental concerns are ...

  • Reduce Your Carbon Emissions

    Saving Energy is easier than you think!The average American generates about 19-20 tons of carbon dioxide each year. Simple activities such as watching television, sending an email message, cooking and making a phone call produce carbon emissions, but there are many simple and inexpensive ways to reduce your carbon emissions ( and your energy costs) beginning today.According to Evan Mills, a ...

  • Modelling the influence of dimethyl sulphide on aerosol production in the marine boundary layer

    It has been postulated that dimethyl sulphide (DMS) emissions from the oceans can produce new condensation nuclei and eventually cloud condensation nuclei. Thus, DMS may have a significant influence on the Earth's radiation budget. A study of this postulate has been conducted for marine boundary layer conditions using a newly developed chemistry–aerosol–cloud (CAC) modelling system. The CAC ...

  • An overview of recent IAEA projects on mercury in non-marine environments

    Nuclear and isotopic techniques are unique tools for studying mercury contamination and cycling in various environments. Therefore, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been supporting the use of nuclear and complementary analytical techniques (mainly neutron activation analysis, inductively coupled plasma – mass spectrometry and atomic absorption spectrometry), and application of ...

  • Integrated Modeling of Fate and Effects of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Marine Ecosystems

    Contaminants reach surface waters through different pathways, ranging from atmospheric deposition, infiltration in the soil during heavy rainfalls and migration with the groundwater or transport in particulate and dissolved phase in rivers. Domestic and industrial sewage water represents a major global source of pollution for surface water. Furthermore, agricultural activities may be associated ...


  • Less Than 3 Percent of Oceans in Marine Parks Despite Recent Growth

    In May 1975, rising concerns about overfishing and deteriorating ocean health prompted scientists and officials from 33 countries to meet in Tokyo for the first global conference on marine parks and reserves. Noting the need for swift action to safeguard more of the sea, the delegates were unanimous in calling for the creation of a global system of marine protected areas (MPAs)—zones ...

  • Modelling emission, concentration and deposition of sodium for Poland

    The aim of this paper was to calculate natural and anthropogenic emission of Na+ and to estimate, with the FRAME model, annual air concentration and deposition of Na+ for the domain covering Poland. Calculations of natural emissions included marine emission and wind blown dust from land. Anthropogenic emission was calculated for both ...

  • CO2 Emissions From Fuel Combustion Highlights 2014

    In the lead-up to the UN climate negotiations in Lima, the latest information on the level and growth of CO2 emissions, their source and geographic distribution will be essential to lay the foundation for a global agreement. To provide input to and support for the UN process, the IEA is making available for free download the "Highlights" version of  ...

  • Shipping Emissions - The Environmental Case for Sea Water Scrubbing

    The romantic image of a luxury liner cruising blue seas amid blue skies and trailing a plume of smoke is too close to the truth for comfort. The emissions from shipping make an increasingly conspicuous contribution to air quality, health and environmental problems of Europe, and indeed, the world. Yet an effective and safe technology to dramatically reduce these emissions is being discouraged, ...


  • Removal of Particulate Matter (PM) and NOx from marine exhaust gas by combining electrostatic water-spraying scrubber and emulsion oil

    In this study, experiments were performed with combination using emulsion oil and an electrostatic water spraying scrubber to evaluate effectiveness for simultaneous removal of NOx and Particulate Matter (PM) emissions in marine exhaust gas. The effects of several parameters, such corona power, gas flow rate, on the contaminant removals have been investigated intensively. Total PM removal ...

  • Vapor-Phase Biofilters Show Promise for Treating High VOC Emissions

    Evaluating the Feasibility of Natural AttenuationUsing natural attenuation to remediate organic compounds in groundwater has gained popularity. In some cases, this process can reduce contaminant levels to below risk-based corrective action criteria or regulatory standards without implementing additional remedial action alternatives. However, it is often difficult to prove that natural ...

  • Full probabilistic service life prediction and life cycle assessment of concrete with fly ash and blast-furnace slag in a submerged marine environment: a parameter study

    Nowadays, more attention is being paid to sustainability in construction. Over the years, the concrete research community has developed a wide range of potential 'green' concretes. To reduce cement related CO2 emissions, a considerable part of the traditional binder can be replaced with industrial by-products. However, as a result of the current focus on comparative durability assessment based on ...

  • Air pollution from ships

    Emissions from shipping contribute significantly to the concentrations and fallout of harmful air pollutants in Europe. There are however technical means by which these pollutants could be cut by as much as 80-90 per cent, and very cost-effectively compared with what would have to be done to achieve similar results by taking further measures on land-based sources. Such reductions are needed for ...

  • Organochlorine contamination of the Canadian Arctic, and speculation on future trends

    Emission of organochlorine chemicals in urban, agricultural and industrial regions of the world has resulted in a substantial influx to the Canadian Arctic. Long-range atmospheric transport and what has been referred to as 'global distillation' transport many chemicals from warm source areas to cold, polar regions. Organochlorines are detected in Arctic air, water, and snow, with substantial ...

  • The impact of international shipping on European air quality and climate forcing

    Due to its dependence on fossil fuel combustion and the fact that it is one of the least regulated anthropogenic emission sources, emissions from the marine transport sector contribute significantly to air pollution and climate change. The main objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive review of recent literature and reports, taking into account expert knowledge, on the maritime ...

  • Sustainable desalination: environmental approaches

    Abstract The environmental issues of possible concern during construction and operation of desalination plants (mainly large-scale facilities) include impacts that are common to many coastal development projects (e.g. land use and aesthetic impacts), as well as specific impacts associated with the elements of the desalination system and auxiliary infrastructure. In the latter category ...
