IMO SG INTERVENES IN EMISSIONS DEBATE

IMO Secretary-General Efthimios Mitropoulos intervened at sub-committee meeting yesterday to propose the setting up of a special group to consider the further control of emissions from ships.

The sub-committee on bulk liquids and gases (BLG) had been considering revisions of Marpol Annex VI which applies to NOX and, of most relevance at present, SOX emissions.

Mr Mitropoulos said that a cross-government industry-scientific group should be commissioned properly to evaluate strategies being proposed to minimise air pollution.

The SG’s move cam as industry and government officials were debating, among other options, whether the world fleet should be switched to distillate fuel.

Mr Mitropoulos’s proposal will have to go the next meeting of the Marine Environment Protection Committee in July which will, if in agreement with the move, commission the group and determine its terms of reference.
