  • Modelling marine exhaust emissions in the Baltic Sea

    A new tool used to investigate exhaust emissions of marine vessels has been developed and applied to shipping in the Baltic Sea. The Baltic Sea is a busy maritime region with 3500-5000 ships operating in the area every month.

  • Shorter shipping routes not necessarily more climate friendly

    For economic and political reasons, freight shipping has begun to utilise shorter routes across Arctic waters. This study assessed the costs, emissions and climate impact of trade using the Northern Sea Route between the Northern Pacific and Europe. It concludes that there are no overall climate benefits to using this route, even though it reduces voyage distance, due to the additional impact of ...

  • Coast Guard wants barges to ship fracking water

    The U.S. Coast Guard wants to allow barges filled with fracking wastewater to ply the nation's rivers on their way toward disposal. Many environmentalists are horrified, but industry groups say barge transport has its advantages. Now, the wastewater is usually disposed of by truck or rail, which poses more risk for accidents than shipping by barge, according to a government report. And one ...

  • Ship speed limits are legal and save fuel

    Requiring ships to slow down is an environmentally beneficial option that is both legal and does not damage ships. These were just some of the findings to emerge from a seminar earlier this month organised by T&E and another NGO, Seas at Risk. As more evidence emerges that the environmental impact of shipping can be reduced by lower speeds, the seminar on so-called ‘slow ...

  • Ship-generated emissions play havoc on environment

    New research shows that emissions generated by ships increase acid rain on shore and may be responsible for over 25% of the ground-level ozone in a number of coastal areas. The research results were recently published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. Past studies have shown that 70% of shipping occurs within 400 kilometres of land. Taking this research further, Professor Stig B. ...

  • Successful airborne pollution compliance monitoring of ships at sea

    Despite new legislation that requires ships to burn low sulphur marine oil in EU and US coastal waters, the economic benefits of continuing to use inexpensive, high-sulphur fuels, combined with the relatively small risk of getting caught, means that many ships are flouting the rules. However, this could be about to change as a real-time, airborne pollution detection system based around a pair of ...

  • New rules on cleaner fuels for shipping will deliver benefits for people`s health

    New environmental rules on marine fuels, entering into force today, will substantially reduce air pollution and its impacts on human health. Air pollutants from maritime shipping are transported over long distances and as a result contribute increasingly to the air quality problems in many European cities. Without any action, sulphur emissions from shipping in EU sea areas would exceed those from ...
