CSA 2020 ‘dismayed’ by unsupported scrubber claims

24 May 2019

The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020) in May issued an industry statement expressing its disappointment by the lack of support for scrubbers and misinformation of the technology from Environmental NGOs and lobby groups.

“Collectively CSA 2020 is dismayed at media reports from activist groups that are making unsupported statements regarding exhaust gas cleaning systems,” stated Ian Adams, Executive Director, CSA 2020.

“Many of these statements are counter-productive and do little to help the global shipping industry’s on-going efforts to prevent emissions of sulphur, black carbon, particulate matter and other substances from having a detrimental impact on the environment and on human health.

“Taking a wider environmental perspective, from ‘well-to-wake’, EGCS, a proven, reliable technology, is the most environmentally-optimum way of reducing these emissions.

“As such, we find it difficult to fathom the motives behind these statements when there is a clear record of scientific studies – including an accumulation study being presented this week at MEPC74 that demonstrate the many benefits of using EGCS to reduce emissions while having negligible impact on the ocean environment.”
