D1.4 Miniaturized Environmental Sensor for Black Carbon Monitoring

This deliverable reports on the status, advancements and future plans of the miniaturized optoacoustic (OA) black carbon (BC) sensor. It includes a short overview of existing black carbon monitoring systems including optoacoustic devices, introduces the new system and how the sensor was tested on a vessel during the SCIPPER C2 Campaign as well as an outlook on how the sensor will be developed further and how possible improvements can be implemented.

D1.5 Compliance pipeline from ship to shore to web enabled secure data delivery

This deliverable is a Demonstration Report that builds on previous SCIPPER Deliverable D1.2 - S-AIS/exactSeNS integration with existing on-board engine management software, and data collected on Campaign 2 - Gothenburg to Kiel (Stena Germanica: 31 August – 11 September 2021) and an additional proof of concept Campaign on the RV Plymouth Quest (Campaign X: May – August 2021).

D1.6 Conclusions of technical possibilities of onboard sensor monitoring

Within the scope of the SCIPPER project, long-term sensor monitoring of real-life engine emissions of ships were investigated. The objectives of this report are: - Evaluation and real-life testing of low-cost sensor options for continuous emission monitoring. - Testing of ship to shore data transmission of emissions data via satellite s-AIS. - Evaluation of calculation methods and reporting formats of emissions data.

The sensors and s-AIS data transmission were tested in two of the SCIPPER measurement campaigns.

D2.1 Review of available remote systems for ship emission measurements

In this review, state of the art remote systems are presented which are currently in use for the measurement and monitoring of emissions from seagoing ships.

D2.2 Prototype of revised sniffer type of remote monitor

This document reports a new, ultra-sensitive, sniffer-based system for remote compliance monitoring of the fuel sulfur content (FSC) in by-passing ships demonstrated in the 3rd SCIPPER campaign

D2.3 Quality assurance of remote monitoring systems and harmonised reporting

This report focuses on best practice in remote compliance monitoring of FSC and discusses whether or not the same methods can be applied to investigate if ships comply with the NOx IMO limits and future particle measurements. It also describes results from several measurement campaigns within SCIPPER in which the available techniques have been tested against each other and against fuel samples and onboard measurements, describes in detail how different operators calculate their uncertainties and makes suggestions on how the data should be reported in a unified way.

D2.4 Potential of satellite monitoring for shipping emissions enforcement

This report summarises the main results obtained in SCIPPER WP2 considering the use of satellite observations for shipping emission monitoring, with a special focus on single ship detection.

D2.5 Compliance of ships with sulphur regulations in the Mediterranean and Baltic/North Seas regions

This deliverable summarizes the results of a large amount of fuel sulphur content measurements data that have been collected in the framework of SCIPPER project.

D2.6 Dataset of anonymised shipping emissions monitoring

Within SCIPPER a large data amount of remotely measured Fuel Sulphur Content (FSC) have been gathered. These FSC data are calculated from measurements of SO2, CO2 and NO in the plumes of ships that pass by the measurement location.

D3.1 Current status of best practices on ship plume modelling

This report overviews the state-of-the-art of ship plume modelling by discussing selected examples from current literature. From this review, a modelling approach for SCIPPER is outlined and special requirements for the experimental activities to support further model development are formulated.

D3.2 Experimental methodology for comprehensive physicochemical characterisation of ship plume

This document reports the main findings of the designed the experimental setup that was designed to collect the ship exhaust data specified in Deliverable D3.1, calibrated parts of the experimental setup and instrumentation and tested oxidation flow reactors for simulating atmospheric ageing

D3.3 Ship on-board emissions characterisation

The aim of the SCIPPER C2 campaign was to conduct detailed on-board characterisation of exhaust emissions including gaseous and particulate matter emissions. Influence of fuel, load, emission abatement techniques and detailed plume chemistry were studied. Also, different emission monitoring approaches were tested (onboard, plume, drone, remote sensing).

D3.4 Atmospherically sampled ship plume characterization

The objective of this report is to provide a broad characterization of atmospherically sampled ship plumes, detailed particulate phase characterization, volatility studies and secondary aerosol formation potential and finally provide pollutant’s emission factors. The results of SCIPPER’s C4 campaign, carried out in July 2021 in the industrial and urban harbour areas of Marseille, will update and improve, through the detailed description of the primary and secondary pollution from ships, current air quality models.

D4.1 New set of emission factors and activity information

This deliverable develops a new set of emission factors for ships based on an extensive review of literature sources that reported ship emission on-board and engine test-beds measurements. The developed emission factors are distinguished according to the engine and fuel type and concern various gaseous pollutants (NOx, SOx, CO, HC), greenhouse gases and PM/PN.

D4.2 Updated inventories on regional shipping activity and port regions

Several updates have been done on the Ship Traffic Emission Assessment Model (STEAM) within the SCIPPER project. These revisions include updating the emission factors according to the SCIPPER Deliverable 4.1, implementing a new comprehensive method for modelling the fuel consumption and emission of LNG engines, introducing a new pollutant, methane, in the model and developing a more detailed approach for modelling emissions of auxiliary engines and boilers. 

D4.3 Shipping emissions contributions to the Mediterranean, North/ Baltic Seas as well as selected regions in Asia

This report describes the results of model studies about the impacts of shipping emissions on air quality in the Mediterranean Sea, the North and Baltic Seas as well as the coast of China.

D4.4 Shipping emissions contribution to port and neighbouring urban areas

This report aims at studying the impact of maritime activities on the air quality in several European ports. The contribution of shipping emissions is quantified by using air quality model systems at high resolution (1km grid size or higher resolution) and comparisons of the results to observations during experimental campaigns.

D5.1 Gaps in current emission enforcement regulations and impacts to real-world emissions

This study identifies gaps related to emission regulations for ships with a focus on enforcement. The aim is to investigate how existing regulations ensure compliance with the legislations on emissions to air.

D5.3 Cost-effectiveness of different approaches for compliance monitoring

This report focusses on the effectiveness and costs of different approaches for monitoring and enforcement of pollutant emissions for sea ships. This concerns emissions such as NOx and SOx regulated under IMO MARPOL Annex VI but additionally also particulate matter emissions including Black Carbon can be monitored. Methane has recently also been included in some monitoring setups, although this is outside the scope of SCIPPER.

D5.4 Impacts of shipping emissions on air pollution in future scenarios

This report describes the results of model studies about the impacts of shipping emissions on air quality in future scenarios.

D5.5 Policy recommendations related to regulations, monitoring and enforcement

This report contains a short review of gaps in policies identified early in the project, an assessment of methods for compliance monitoring, results from air pollution modelling of non-compliance scenarios, a discussion on quality assurance in monitoring and finally a list of recommendations for potential policy changes.
