Two papers of SCIPPER project – “Monitoring of ship emissions to enforce environmental regulations. The SCIPPER project” and “Real Sailing Emissions for maritime vessels using sensors and satellite data transmission” – were presented today in the 24th International Transport and Air Pollution Conference. Prof. Leonidas Ntziachristos presented the methodological framework for assessing the potential of […]
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
