Control of Air Pollution

from Ships

and its Current Revision process

Dr. Tim Gunner, Technical Consultant, Intertanko

why marpol annex vi
Why MARPOL Annex VI?
  • Emission Gases from Ships
    • Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) – create Ozone
    • Sulphur Oxides (SOx) – create acidification
    • Hydrocarbons (HC) – gas, soot and some particulates
    • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
    • Refrigerant Gases
  • Non Annex VI
    • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) – is a GHG
    • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • The concentration of exhaust gases is variable according to the engine type, engine settings and fuel type.
imo regional developments
  • Annex VI entered into force in 2005
  • Baltic Sea - SECA from May 2006
  • North Sea/English Channel - SECA from November 2007
    • EU Directive – from August 2007
  • Major Revision of MARPOL Annex VI – Commenced 2006 and due for completion 2007/8
  • European Sulphur Directive governs emissions in port (0.1% S at berth)
  • California (CARB) new regulations (0.5% S) which take effect in 2007
  • Various ports are facing new local regulations on Ship Emissions, which are governing future expansion and development
the regulations in annex vi
The Regulations inAnnex VI
  • There are 19 Regulations but the following Regulations will impact Vessel operation
    • Regulation 12 – Ozone Depleting Substances
    • Regulation 13 – NOx emissions
    • Regulation 14 – Sulphur Oxide emissions
    • Regulation 15 – VOC emissions
    • Regulation 16 – Shipboard Incinerators
    • Regulation 18 – Fuel Oil Quality control
regulation 13 nox
Regulation 13 – NOx
  • For all Engines (except emergency engines) installed on ships after 1st January 2000 of more than 130 kW must comply to this Regulation.
  • The NOx emission is limited to 17 g/kW h for engines operating at 130 rpm but reducing to 9.8 g/kW h for 2000 rpm. Between these revs the limit is designated by equation:

45 * n(-0.2) g/kW h

  • Existing engines can become a “new” engine if substantially modified.
proposed revisions of regulation 13 nox
Proposed Revisions of Regulation 13 - NOx
  • Tiered approach to further NOx reductions – Tier 2 from date of revisions coming into force - 2010, and Tier 3 from 2015
  • Lower limit NOx emissions (30 - 40% reduction discussed for first tier – 2010)
  • Further NOx emission limitation on all existing engines, particularly those installed after Jan. 2000
  • NECAs – NOx emission control areas (Tier 3 levels for these areas?)
regulation 14 sox
Regulation 14 - SOx
  • The Worldwide Sulphur cap on fuel oil is set at 4.5%.
  • Sulphur Emission Control areas (SECAs)
    • Areas – Baltic, North Sea and English Channel
    • Sulphur Level of fuel – 1.5% or;
    • Alternatively use an exhaust gas cleaning system
    • Ship must have cleared all pipe systems and tanks and be using low sulphur fuel on entry
proposed revisions of regulation 14 sox
Proposed Revisions of Regulation 14 - SOx
  • Reduction of SOx emissions
    • Reduction of the Global Cap – e.g. to 3.00%
    • Reduction of the SECA Cap – e.g. to 1.00% or 0.50%
  • Correction for the reporting and measurement standard to two decimal places for Sulphur content (Bunker Delivery Note criterion).

New Parameter for Air Pollution Control
  • Particulate Matter Emission control
  • What are these Particulates?
    • Sulphates from SOx
    • Nitrates from NOx
    • VOC from uncombusted hydrocarbons
    • Heavy Metals e.g. Vanadium, Nickel, Aluminium, Sodium, Calcium, Zinc; from Heavy Fuel oil and Lube Oil
    • Soot – from the aromatics in heavy fuel oil
particulate matter regulation and control methods
Particulate Matter Regulation and Control Methods
  • At present this subject matter has not been fully debated within the working group
  • Issues to be confronted:
    • Size of the Particulate to be regulated – 10 micron or 2.5 micron
    • Extent of limitation of Particulate emission
    • Methods for control of Particulate emissions – e.g. Scrubbers and/or Filters
    • Storage and Disposal of Particulates
    • Control and verification of reduced emissions
current regulation 18 fuel oil quality
Current Regulation 18 – Fuel Oil Quality
  • “Fuel oil shall be blends of hydrocarbons derived from petroleum refining”
  • “Fuel oil shall be free from inorganic acid”
  • “Fuel oil shall not include any added substance or chemical waste which either:
    • Jeopardises the safety of ships or adversely affects the performance of the machinery, or
    • Is harmful to personnel, or
    • Contributes overall to additional air pollution”
regulation 18 fuel oil quality
Regulation 18 – Fuel Oil Quality
  • Bunker Delivery Note (BDN)
    • Becomes a Statutory document
    • Must be kept on board for 3 years for inspection and a copy taken for further examination.
    • Must contain all data required by appendix V
      • Name and IMO number of vessel
      • Port
      • Date of Commencement of delivery
      • Details of fuel oil supplier
      • Product name, quantity , Density at 15 0C and Sulphur content % m/m
      • A declaration that fuel supplied meets Regulation 14 and 18.
regulation 18 fuel oil quality15
Regulation 18 – Fuel Oil Quality
  • Fuel Oil Sampling
  • A sealed sample meeting the requirements in associated guidelines has to given to the ship by the bunker supplier
  • For each individual BDN a sample has to be taken at the vessel’s bunker receiving manifold. (see procedure in associated guidelines)
  • The sample label has to be signed by both the bunker supplier’s representative and the vessel’s Chief Engineer.
  • The sample size shall be not less than 400 mls
  • The sample is not to be used for any commercial purpose
  • The sample is to be retained on board for at least 1 year for inspection by PSC as required
intertanko s suggestions to imo blg working group
INTERTANKO’s suggestions to IMO BLG working Group
  • The use of distillate fuels, with a global Sulphur content cap introduced using a two tiered programme, as follows:
    • from [2010], a maximum of 1.00% S content
    • for ships’ engines installed on and after [2015], a maximum [0.50]% Sulphur content
  • A Global Sulphur Emission Control Area
  • If the above two issues were considered feasible, then the provisions for checking and monitoring compliance with Regulation 14 and 18 should be revised accordingly.
intertanko s suggestions solutions for the revision
INTERTANKO’s SuggestionsSolutions for the Revision
  • Automatic reduction of NOx due to fuel quality by 10 – 15% and allows engine manufacturers to develop more “in engine” technologies.
  • Removes the requirement for storage of three fuels and the changeover safety problems for SECA entry
  • Removes the requirement to regulate Particulate Matter
  • Removes the risk of Regional Regulation
  • Regulates one type of acceptable fuel quality for all ships and aligns shipping with other forms of transport
  • Simplifies verification and control
