MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 13
Evolution EMS™ remains the simplest way to comply with MARPOL Annex VI Regulation 13 and is the emissions monitoring system chosen by many of the world’s leading shipowners. The latest amendments to MARPOL Annex VI will result in major reductions in the allowable NOx emissions levels over the course of the next few years. These reductions will necessitate emissions reduction technology and onboard emissions monitoring as standard.
Many modern shipping companies commit to the ISO14001 environmental performance management system. Under ISO14001 direct monitoring and reporting of air emissions using Evolution EMS™ is considered as best practice.Evolution EMS™ delivers totally accurate emissions data rather than relying upon relatively inaccurate modelling based purely on fuel consumption models.
Ship CO2 Indexing & Emissions Trading
Many sources outside the shipping industry are pressing for the shipping industry to fall into line with other industries and to take part in emissions trading. It remains to be seen if this becomes a reality but if it does, Evolution EMS™ is ready & configures for carrying out the necessary monitoring and reporting.
Classification Society Environmental Notations
Classification societies are now introducing environmental notations to encourage the highest level of environmental performance on new ships. In 2006 Bureau Veritas led the way by introducing their CLEANSHIP SUPER NOTATION which made the installation of a Type Approved onboard NOx monitoring system mandatory. Other class societies are reviewing their highest level environmental notations in relation to ship emissions.
The Evolution EMS™ system has been designed to be ‘futureproof’ against future regulations allowing simple ‘plug and play’ analyser inputs ensuring no additional ship emissions reporting system will ever need to be purchased.
