Module 4. Air Pollution

  • Module 4. Air Pollution

In 2019, air pollution is considered by WHO as the greatest environmental risk to health. Toxic atmospheric pollutants (SO2, NOx and PM) are emitted by ships and an array of measures has been adopted by IMO (ANNEX VI of MARPOL) and EU (the Sulphur Directive) to combat them. For the implementation of these measures, new fuels, operations, technology and infrastructure is applied to both ships and ports.
