  • Sulphur rules on ship fuels widely ignored

    Stricter rules on the sulphur content of marine fuels are not being widely observed. That is the conclusion of a report from the shipping insurers’ publication ‘Lloyds List’ which suggests stricter rules brought in last summer are not yet bringing about cleaner seas. Up to 1 July 2010, ships using specially designated Emissions Control Areas (Secas) had to use fuels with a ...

  • Could this be the breakthrough in tackling shipping’s climate impact?

    Shipping could become the first industry to have a global carbon dioxide reduction measure. A legislative process has been set in motion at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) which, if approved, could see obligatory energy efficiency standards for new ships come into effect in 2013. A vote is expected at the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) in July. The energy ...

  • IMO succumbs to pressure to delay ship NOx regulations

    The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) today abandoned the fixed start date for new NOx emissions control areas (NECAs), which require an 80% cut in NOx from new ships sailing in specially designated zones. Instead, the IMO will replace the 2016 application date with flexible provisions for any NECAs established after that date. Transport & Environment (T&E) deplores this ...

  • Step forward on air pollution from shipping

    The world’s largest marine Emissions Control Area (ECA) has been approved by the International Maritime Organisation. Ships operating in waters off the North American coasts will be forced to use dramatically cleaner fuel and technology. The move is likely to make it easier for the EU to designate ECAs in European waters. The IMO’s decision last month to approve the ECA proposal came ...

  • New law bolsters US efforts to make ocean-going ships cleaner

    With the president's July 21 signature of the Maritime Pollution Protection Act of 2008, US agencies are setting course to implement a key international agreement to reduce air pollution from large ships. This key step clears the way for US ratification of the international treaty regulating emissions – known as MARPOL Annex VI -- from large diesel-powered, ocean-going vessels. Under MARPOL ...

  • Vote on cutting shipping emissions needs EU action now

  • IMO sets sail for global action on pollution from large ships

    With the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) adoption of new emissions standards for large diesel ships and their fuels, EPA can now move forward with a domestic rulemaking action under the Clean Air Act. When fully implemented, this will help reduce harmful emissions by 80 percent or more from large diesel ships, including those that are foreign-flagged operating in US waters. 'Massive ...
