The Clean Shipping Alliance (CSA) 2020 is advising those shipowners looking to install scrubbers in order to meet global sulphur cap requirements, to make sure that manufacturers, shipyards and installers are using quality, high-end materials.
Members of the Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 expressed disappointment in regard to Malaysia’s recently-announced decision to prohibit the use of open-loop scrubbers in its coastal waters, stressing concerns for shipowners who have already opted for scrubbers as a way of compliance with the 2020 sulphur cap.
CE Delft, a research organisation in the Netherlands with expertise on environmental issues, presented its results on scrubbers, highlighting that accumulated concentrations of exhaust gas cleaning systems, EGCS, or scrubbers, wash water components are at very low levels and well below applicable regulatory limits. Thus, the Clean Shipping Alliance (CSA) 2020 applauds the results.
Ian Adams, Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 Executive Director published a statement, answering to the NGOs and the environmental groups that called the IMO to re-evaluate scrubbers as alternative tool for 2020 fuel standards.
The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020) issued a statement according to which it has received written approvals and no-objection letters from several Port Authorities around the world indicating they have no intention of banning the use of open-loop scrubbers in their waters.
