  Air Emissions
   Peter M. Swift
         Governing Regulations
• MARPOL Annex VI entered into effect in 2005
• Baltic Sea - SECA from May 2006
• North Sea - SECA in November 2007
• Europe Sulphur Directive (1999 & Rev) governs
  inter alia emissions in port (0.1% S at berth)
• California (CARB) new regulations which took
  effect Jan 2007
• Various ports
  - local regulations on Ship Emissions, which are
  inhibiting future expansion/development
  - introducing differentiated port fees

    Of particular concern to tramp sectors, trading
    internationally, lifting bunkers in ports worldwide

               “suggestion” i.e. merits discussion

•   Nov ‟06    IMO Intersessional WG develops 4 options to be sent to
     INTERTANKO : Guiding Principles

Executive Committee (June 2006) – Principles for an
  INTERTANKO position:

   – ensure a solid platform of requirements
   – be realistic and feasible
   – seek a long term and positive reduction of air
     emissions from ships, and
   – contribute to a long term and a predictable
     regulatory regime
        Alternative Approaches
• Future production of low sulphur fuels & time
• Proving of / reliability of SCR and scrubber
• Costs of extra bunker tanks & associated systems
• Costs of manifold modifications / sampling
• Costs of additional maintenance
• Means of disposing of wash water and scrubbed
• Suitability of blended fuels
• Net benefits
• Future costs of low sulphur HFO/IFOs
• Distillate fuels & 2-tiered S cap program:
  – from [2010], a maximum of 1.00% S content
  – for ships’ engines installed on and after [2015], a
    maximum [0.50]% S content

• A Global Sulphur Emission Control Area

• A New Fuel specification in Annex VI

• Simpler monitoring of compliance
              MDO – ADVANTAGES
                AIR EMISSIONS
• Applies to ALL existing ships/engines
• With no other measure, immediately
  – SOx emissions by 80% to 90%
  – PM emissions by 90%
  – NOx emissions by 10% to 15%
• Reduces fuel consumption with some 4%
  from ALL ships and thus CO2 emissions
• Facilitates further NOx reductions by in-
  engine modifications for IMO’s Tier II & III
           MDO – ADVANTAGES
             AIR EMISSIONS

• Engines designed for use of MDO only
  will accommodate further emission
  reductions over their entire life time

• Further regulatory reduction of air
  emissions from ships will be a function
  of better quality fuels and not limited
  by engine’s functional parameters

  – Reduces onboard fuel generated waste
  – No fuel heating/treatment = energy saving
  – ALL ships become “greener”
  – “Cleaner” waste & free of hazardous elements
    contained in residual fuels
  – Avoiding use of abatement technologies = no further
    additional waste & no need of further waste disposal
  – Potential bunker spills significantly less harmful
  – Less incidents with engine breakdowns caused by
    poorer quality fuels
  – No need of complex fuel change-over operations
  – No risk of incompatibility of blended fuels
  – Safer working environment for crews
           BLG Working Group Options: SOx

• A. Status Quo - No change
• B. Sulphur Emissions Control Area (SECA):
   – A global sulphur cap (unchanged or lower value)
   – SECA sulphur cap lowered in two tiers:
      • 1.0% in [2010]
      • 0.5% in [2015]
• C1. Change to distillate fuels (no SECA) :
   – Use of distillate fuels for all ships
   – A global sulphur cap in two tiers:
      • 1.0% in [2012]
      • 0.5% in [2015]
   – Include in MARPOL Annex VI the specification for
     the distillate fuel to be used by ships
• C2. Global cap – As C1 but allows use of residual fuel +
          Challenges for IMO
  Reduce air emissions from ships

• What emissions
  - SOx, NOx, PM, VOCs ?
  - Later CO2 ?

• Where
  - Globally, Coastal regions ?

• Timing:
  - Phased, where/when/how ?
                   OPTIONS ?
 Reduce air emissions from ships

• High sulphur residual with scrubbers

• Low sulphur residual

• Combination HS/LS residual

• MDO (Low sulphur)

• Other combination
                CO2 Emissions –
           Net Environmental Benefit
• High refinery CO2 emissions from de-
  sulphurisation of residuals
• High refinery CO2 emissions from MDO
• Ship CO2 emissions lower with MDO due
  to lower fuel consumption
• Ship CO2 emissions lower with MDO
  since no need to heat residual fuels prior
  treatment & injection
• High CO2 emissions in manufacturing &
  operating scrubbers
               USA Proposal to BLG11

• SOx & PM – emission limits at [200]
  nm from shore as from 2011 [0.1% S
• NOx standards for existing (pre-2000)
  engines - 20% reduction
• NOx for new engines:
  – Tier II       - 15% – 25% as from 2011
  – Tier III      - 80% only in defined areas
                       (NECAs) as from 2016
       Norwegian proposal to BLG11

• SOx: MDO 0.5% sulphur content in all
  ships by 2015
• NOx - slow speed engines (n < 130 rpm)
  and intermediate speed engines
  (130rpm < n < 1000 rpm) - in engine
  – a) Tier II: 20%
  – b) Tier III: 40%
• NOx on existing (pre 2000) slow speed
  engines – as by Tier I standard (17
           Other Propsals to BLG11


• No suggestions for measures related to SOx
  and PM emissions.
• NOx emissions - reduction by 80% by a
  combination of fuel quality, in engine
  technology and after treatment technology.


• SOx & PM emissions - use of MDO with a lower
  sulphur content, most likely in a two tier step
  at dates to be established by IMO.
                What next?

• BLG : 16 -20 April 2007
• MEPC 56: 9-13 July 2007
• EU Commission to take stock of
  – Review of Sulphur Directive – 2008
  – Scope for Community measures to
    reduce ship emissions pursuant to
    Council’s conclusions - 2008
• US considers own legislation if IMO
  does not deliver
               What next?

• Annex VII – Scrubber / Catalytic
  Converter toxic waste handling

• Biomass – 20% reduction target for

• Emissions trading – extended to

• Sequestration of CO2
                Current position
• INTERTANKO encourages open debate on the options
  available to reduce damaging air emissions from ships
  and has sought to provide for discussion comprehensive
  solutions that are applicable on a global basis.
• We remain anxious that the current reviews around the
  world do not result in a mix of local and regional
  requirements that impose an onerous burden on
  international shipping, especially those engaged in
  tramp shipping - bunkering in and trading to ports around
  the world.
• We continue to stress the importance that any new
  requirements should take full account of all the
  operational and safety considerations, and should be
  assessed on the same basis - this latter should involve
  the cost and environmental implications of all the
  production, manufacturing, operating and waste
  handling aspects of the proposed system, as well as
  other practicalities with respect to introduction,
  fitting/retrofitting, etc.
