Scrubbers: A False Solution to the IMO’s Sulphur Cap

Scrubbers: A False Solution to the IMO’s Sulphur Cap

This webinar will focus on how the use of scrubbers – also known as EGCS (exhaust gas cleaning systems) – have turned global shipping’s air pollution problem into an ocean pollution problem, and why use of scrubbers may conflict with UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea).

TradeWinds: At COP27, a bid to lift shipping’s black carbon emissions up the agenda

Eric Priante Martin on TradeWinds, 16 November 2022: At COP27, a bid to lift shipping’s black carbon emissions up the agenda There is perhaps no more iconic front line in the battle against climate change than the Arctic, where scientists say temperatures have risen by three times the global average. That has led to a dangerous feedback loop. Global warming melts the sea ice, but that ice actually helps keep the planet cooler by reflecting some if the sun’s rays, so when it goes away, it threatens to make climate change worse. And this has opened the door to another
COP27 Side Event: Low Hanging Fruit - Reducing Shipping Black Carbon Emissions This Decade

COP27 Side Event: Low Hanging Fruit – Reducing Shipping Black Carbon Emissions This Decade

This event will respond to the urgency, conveyed by the latest IPCC reports, to reduce emissions of short-lived climate forcers such as black carbon, along with greenhouse gases, by focusing on the shipping sector. It will consider the perspective of Indigenous communities and communities from low-lying island States. It will set out options and proposed immediate actions which would kick-start reductions in ships’ emissions that impact the Arctic.
