  • Environment Committee calls for monitoring, reporting and verification of both NOx and CO2

    The European Parliament’s Environment Committee voted overwhelmingly today (Jan. 30) to support and strengthen some elements of the Commission’s proposal for monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of shipping emissions. Transport & Environment welcomes the inclusion of the air pollutant NOx in the monitoring measure. However, MEPs rejected the chance to use ship efficiency ...

  • NOx Catalyst and Reagent Market Grows Nicely while Equipment Slumps

    The sales of reagent for stationary NOx control in 2017 will exceed $3 billion. This does not include sales of AdBlue for mobile NOx control which are growing rapidly. The SCR catalyst market will also be down to just under $1.6 billion from a peak two years ago of $1.8 billion. The reason is that there was a surge of orders for new SCR in China which peaked in 2014. It is 3-5 ...

  • Questions and Answers on the new European air quality directive

     Questions and Answers on the new directive on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe 1) What is the issue? Air pollution is caused by the emission to the atmosphere of certain substances which, alone or through chemical reaction, can damage human health and/or the environment. Air pollution is both a local and a transboundary problem as emissions from one country can travel large ...

  • EU ship emissions directive improves air quality in harbours

    To reduce air pollution levels in harbours, EU Directive 2005/33/EC requires all anchored ships to use fuels with low sulphur content. A recent study of air quality in Mediterranean harbours shows that levels of sulphur dioxide have decreased significantly since the Directive was implemented in 2010. Ships are a major source of harmful air pollutants, such as sulphur dioxide (SO2) and ...

  • Environnement S.A announces the AS32M: the unique analyser allowing quick and direct measurement of NO2

    The European Directive 2008/50/EC requires the measurement of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) at minima in all agglomerations of more than 100 000 inhabitants. Currently, some of these sites do not meet the limit values and quality objectives set, particularly on sites located in the vicinity of roads (traffic sites), directly impacted by vehicle emissions. The uncertainties related to measurement ...

  • EU states expect to exceed air pollutant limits

    The European Environment Agency has confirmed that 11 EU countries expect to exceed their legal emissions ceiling for nitrogen oxides (NOx) in 2010, some by more than 40%. The EEA's annual status report reveals that several Member States, including Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom, expect to exceed their respective NOx ceilings by small margins (less than 5 %). However, France and Spain ...

  • Air pollutant emission limits exceeded in twelve EU Member States

    Twelve Member States exceeded one or more of the emission limits set by the EU National Emission Ceilings (NEC) Directive, according to recent official data for 2010 reported to the European Environment Agency (EEA). In some instances the limits were exceeded by significant amounts. For the first time, preliminary data recently reported to the EEA by Member States allow a comparison ...

  • More EU Member States to miss 2010 air pollutant limits

    A preliminary analysis of data reported under the EU National Emission Ceilings Directive (NEC Directive) by Member States at the end of 2007 indicates that more countries anticipate missing one or more of their legally-binding 2010 emission ceilings compared to last year. The NEC Directive requires all Member States to annually report information concerning emissions and projections for four ...

  • Reduce green house emissions with catalytic oxidation

    There are five basic types of environmental VOC air pollution control technologies. These include straight through direct flame thermal oxidation, recuperative thermal oxidation, straight through catalytic oxidation, recuperative catalytic oxidation, and regenerative thermal oxidation. What most companies are unaware of is that catalytic systems require half of the energy demand in comparison ...

  • EU to exceed air pollutant limit due to growth in road transport

    Despite significant emission reductions in recent years, only 11 EU Member States expect to remain within their emission limits for all four air pollutants set by the EU National Emission Ceilings Directive (NEC Directive). The nitrogen oxides ceiling remains the most difficult to comply with. This is partly due to the fact that demand for road transport has grown faster than anticipated. The NEC ...

  • Rotork actuators support the environmental improvement programme at Aberthaw Power Station

    RWE Aberthaw Power Station in South Wales is now one of the most efficient coal fired power stations in the UK, through the use of automation that includes Rotork valve actuation. Aberthaw can generate around 1555 MW of electricity for the National Grid System, which is enough power to meet the needs of some 3 million households. Following the introduction of Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) which ...

  • High potential to cut air pollution from Europe`s power plants

    Emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) from large combustion plants (LCP) could have been considerably lower in 2004, a report presented today by the European Environment Agency says. Power plants burning coal, oil and/or gas are significant contributors to European emissions of NOx and SO2 — two important acidifying pollutants. Improving the environmental performance of ...

  • EU to exceed nitrogen oxides emission ceiling, mostly due to road transport

    The EU-27 and its Member States must meet legally binding limits for four air pollutants set by the National Emission Ceilings Directive (NEC Directive) to protect human health and the environment. The annual status report released today by the European Environment Agency (EEA) shows that while EU-27 emissions for three air pollutants are projected to meet the ceilings, nitrogen oxides (NOx) ...

  • IMO U-turn jeopardises citizens` health in EU Year of Air

    The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) today decided to postpone the entry into force of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions limits for ship engines from 2016 to 2021. Environmental NGOs Transport & Environment (T&E) and Seas at Risk, founding members of the IMO observer organisation Clean Shipping Coalition, condemn IMO’s decision and now call on the EU to adopt its own NOx ...

  • Nitrogen oxide emissions still a major problem in Europe

    Air pollution emitted from sources such as traffic, industry and households is still above internationally agreed limits in many European countries, according to data published today. The accompanying report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) confirms an initial assessment published earlier this year, showing 12 EU Member States exceeded limits under the National Emissions Ceilings (NEC) ...

  • EU sulphur limits to be revised

    The Commission has launched a consultation on updating the existing directive that limits the sulphur content of fuels used in ships. The directive dates from 1999 and needs revision to bring it in line with the stricter standards agreed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) two years ago. The Clean Shipping Coalition (CSC), of which T&E is a leading member, has been pressing the ...
