SOCP’s Exhaust Gas Cleaning System Selection Guide

Friday, March 18, 2011

The Ship Operations Cooperative Program (SOCP) announced the release of a recently completed study on Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS). SOCP conducted the study in light of new EPA regulations that become mandatory to ships operating in Emission Control Areas (ECA) in 2015 requiring low sulfur emission. The objective of the study is to assist ship operators in the dilemma of switching to expensive distillate fuel in ECA or install EGCS and continue to burn hi-sulfur heavy fuels.

The Guide will assist ship operators in determining their emissions requirements, calculating potential cost savings, and understanding the integration and operational challenges of various EGCS technologies available today.
 
The development of this Guide is made possible through the financial support of the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) and the Ship Operations Cooperative Program (SOCP). SOCP is an industry-government partnership whose purpose is to address and promote commercial shipping operations through the identification, development, and application of new methods, procedures, and technologies. SOCP’s overall objective is to improve the competitiveness, safety, security and environmental responsiveness of all U.S. vessel operations.
 
SOCP produced this report for the benefit of the entire maritime industry and it can be downloaded at no cost from the SOCP website (www.socp.us). SOCP members will be required to log in and non-members will be need to email a request.
