Mitigating the Airborne Emissions from Shipping

While shipping is one of the most environmentally-friendly modes of transport in terms of transport effort per unit impact, it does make a significant contribution to air pollution, especially in terms of Oxides of Nitrogen (NOX), Sulphur (SOX) and Carbon (COX) together with Particulate Matter (PM) and unburned hydrocarbons (HC). The effects of this pollution on not only the environment, but also on human health are increasingly of critical concern in ports and regional shipping areas, which are located close to urban districts. Furthermore, Carbon Dioxide emissions from shipping are significantly contributing to anthropogenic global climate change. In response, at Newcastle University, extensive research is being undertaken to mitigate the production and spread of poisonous marine exhaust gas emissions with a focus on regional and harbour-based shipping activity, together with programmes of research addressing the global impact of carbon dioxide production. This talk will outline the extent of this research covering: technologies for exhaust gas mitigation; simplistic and complex methods for predicting the production of emissions under different operational conditions, which are important emerging tools in planning and optimising shipping activity for reduced emissions impact; experiences and results from on-board measurement of emissions; and perspectives on indices and schemes for holistically classifying the emission impact of shipping activity and promoting a reduction in overall emissions.
