October 5, 2012

Emissions monitoring systems manufacturer, Parker Procal, welcomes EU move to monitor, report & verify emissions.

The EU announced recently that it will start measuring shipping emissions from 2013 as a first step towards delivering a global solution for cutting the sector's climate change impact. EU Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard and Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas made the announcement at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

Parker Procal, a manufacturer of in-situ, multi component Continuous Emissions Monitoring systems (CEMS), welcomes the EU decision to create a global system for monitoring, reporting and verification of emissions.

Tony Bowers, European Sales Manager, Parker Procal said: “We are delighted to see proactive EU plans to combat climate change calling for robust systems of emissions monitoring on international vessels. This will ensure a step-change in the maritime sector improving efficiency and sustainability of the entire industry. Emissions can only be reduced when they are accurately monitored and measured. Parker Procal have been pioneers in emissions monitoring technology since 1985 and look forward to supporting the industry achieve its reduction targets.

“While the EU have mooted the use of bunker fuel data to track emissions levels, accurate exhaust emissions monitoring technology has already been developed and is in wide commercial use in the maritime sector to accurately and continuously measure SOx levels from vessels with scrubber technology.”
