The South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) announced that Africa is ready to implement the global regulations concerning the air pollution by vessels, according to IMO’s MARPOL convention. SAMSA’s acting CEO, Mr Sobantu Tilayi, focuses on the 2020 sulphur cap and Africa’s intention on fighting pollution and reducing shipping emissions.
90% of world trade is being transported by ships at sea. However, emissions from ships are seriously affecting tens of thousands of people every year.
For this reason, the Port of Gothenburg, Scandinavia’s busiest shipping hub, is trying to come up with a number of methods to tackle the effects of shipping pollution.
