A number of Iranian officials responsible for implementing International Maritime Organization (IMO) standards on air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from shipping are undergoing training from the organisation at a national workshop in Tehran, Islamic Republic of Iran (18 April).
Around 30 participants from the country’s Ports and Maritime Organization (PMO), Department of Environment and numerous ports are taking part.
They are being trained on the IMO treaty restricting air pollution from ships as well as ship energy-efficiency measures – MARPOL Annex VI. This includes measures addressing sulphur oxide (SOx) and nitrogen oxide (NOx), which have been successful in lowering the amount of those pollutants being emitted from ships.
The event was hosted by the PMO and run by IMO’s Astrid Dispert and a consultant. It is funded and carried out as part of IMO’s on-going technical cooperation work – under the Organization’s Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme.
