CSA 2020 statement in response to Environmental NGOs and lobby groups’ concerns relating to Exhaust Gas Clean Systems:

Ian Adams, Executive Director, CSA 2020:

“Collectively CSA 2020 is dismayed at media reports from activist groups that are making unsupported statements regarding exhaust gas cleaning systems.  Many of these statements are counter-productive and do little to help the global shipping industry’s on-going efforts to prevent emissions of sulphur, black carbon, particulate matter and other substances from having a detrimental impact on the environment and on human health.

“Taking a wider environmental perspective, from ‘well-to-wake’, EGCS, a proven, reliable technology, is the environmentally-optimum way of reducing such emissions. As such, we find it difficult to fathom the motives behind these statements when there is a clear record of scientific studies – including an accumulation study being presented this week at MEPC74 that demonstrate the many benefits of using EGCS to reduce emissions while having negligible impact on the ocean environment.”
