SCIPPER: Shipping Contributions to Inland Pollution Push for the Enforcement of Regulations

SCIPPER is a European project which aims at deploying state-of-art and next-generation measurement techniques to monitor emissions of vessels under their normal operation.

SCIPPER objectives are achieved in five real-world experimental campaigns involving actual vessels and the largest ports in the EU. A mirror activity in Asia has been scheduled to validate results obtained in the EU.

The main objectives of SCIPPER are:

  • To provide evidence on the performance and capacity of different techniques for shipping emissions monitoring and regulations’ enforcement
  • To assess the impacts of shipping emissions on air quality, under different regulatory enforcement scenarios
