EGCSA workshop will examine emissions requirements
The Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems Association (EGCSA) is to hold a two-day workshop for the to discuss the effect of new rules and regulations on emission requirements and fuel use.
These include the latest California Air Resources Board fuel rules, new plans to lower at berth emissions and pathways for reducing particulate matter emissions.
“EGCSA was set up to offer impartial technical information and advice on the issues and challenges facing the shipping industry that relate to emissions reduction and marine exhaust gas cleaning systems,” said Donald Gregory, EGCSA director.
EGCSA industry workshops offer industry members a free flowing, intimate forum to share knowledge and discuss key issues with experts.
Topics that will be debated from 27 to 28 February include the introduction of operational experience for EGCS in US and Canadian waters by the United States Coast Guard. The workshop presentations will cover inspection and verification, as well as the latest documentation requirements.
Meanwhile, the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) Vessel General Permit (VGP) is also up for revision with the current VGP ceasing to apply in December 2018. With an increasing number of vessels fitted with EGCS visiting US waters, experience, performance and other aspects of future VGP requirements will also be examined.
The next EGCSA event is planned for late November 2018 in Asia.
