Air particulate emission monitoring

D3.3.6 Air particulate emission monitoring MAL 31Dec10.pdf


Globally, ships emit large quantities of particle pollution into the air every year. "Since more that 70% of shipping traffic takes place within 250 miles of the coastline, this is a significant health concern for coastal communities".

Legislation in the shipping industry is pointing to a reduction in the sulphur content of fuel to be used on seas going vessels. Real-time particulate monitoring will play an important role for the shipping industry. These are not presently available, but a review of the present capabilities shows the emergence of new technology in the marketplace. The commitment of the automotive industry to develop onboard diagnostics sensors will lead to better monitoring of airborne particulate on seagoing vessels and assist the introduction and operation of air particulate filters.
