CSI WEBINAR SERIES: SCRUBBERS - THE TRUTH!

WEDNESDAY 13 OCTOBER | 12:00 - 13:30 GMT | FREE TO ATTEND

Shipping companies have
two options to remain
compliant with IMO and
regional emissions regulation.
They can either remove
emissions from exhaust
gases, through abatement
technologies like scrubbers
or catalytic converters or by
changing from diesel to a
low-emissions fuel such as
Methanol.

Shipping companies have really only two options if they want to remain compliant with IMO and regional emissions regulations: either remove emissions from exhaust gases, through abatement technologies like scrubbers and catalytic converters, or by changing from diesel to a low emissions fuel.

SCRUBBERS AND THE TRUTH follows the success of Clean Shipping International’s popular webinar series to help ship owners better extract the fact from the fiction in what is a hugely divisive topic.

While opinion on open loop scrubbers remains divided the Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems Association (EGCSA) – the trade association representing scrubber manufactures – commissioned research on the environmental impact of washwater from them. 

Don Gregory, EGCSA’s Director, robustly makes the case that scrubbers have no significant impact on marine ecosystems.

Notwithstanding EGCSA’s position, regulations and future issues are always not far over the horizon. Ian Adams, MD of IMA Marine will explore what these likely changes are, paying particular attention to the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal waters of China.

What will be the role of scrubbers in the short and long term? What have been the experiences of owners? Sacha Cornell, Norbulk Shipping’s Fleet Manager, will discuss post installation challenges.

Join us to examine the exhaust gas cleaning options as part of your clean shipping initiaitve!

 

Our expert panel will debate:

Regulations and future issues –  In this presentation we will explore what changes are on the horizon, particular attention being paid to the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal waters of China.

The Washwater debate –  EGCSA has sought to address the concern of some ports with the first ever ecotoxicity study. A study undertaken by DHI in Copenhagen has evaluated the toxic impact of the discharges of four open loop scrubbers.

Operational and installation challenges  – Norbulk's experience indicates that many of the early problems were related to the 'marinisation' of shore based EGCS technology, without sufficient attention being paid to seagoing operations.
