Reducing Air Pollution from Ships


The report identifies a number of possible means for further reduction of air pollution from shipping in Danish waters. The main conclusions are: Danish authorities can regulate less than 10% of the air pollution emitted in Danish waters. The cost of reducing air pollution from ships is small compared to the benefit to the society, especially for NOx. Reduction of air pollution from ships through national regulation will lead to costs related to installation, operation and administration. This can create uneven competition between Danish and foreign ship owners.

The report is prepared for Partnership for Cleaner Shipping, which consists of the Danish Environmental Protection Agency and the Danish Ship Owners Organisation.
