Assessment for Possible Future ECA Adoption in the Mediterranean Area (Short Sea Shipping vs. Road Transport)

In accordance with the Appendix III of MARPOL´s Annex VI, six criteria are proposed for an emission control area (ECA) definition: a clear delineation of the proposed ECA; land and sea areas at risk; emission quantification and impact assessment; prevailing weather conditions; data on marine traffic; and land based measures concurrent with the ECA adoption. This paper carries out a scenario analysis from 2012 onward and until 2020, comparing both intra-European road transport and multimodal transport chains in the Mediterranean area. It assesses maritime transport’s emissions and impacts in comparison with land based road transport. Therefore from the aforementioned six criteria this paper considers two: emission quantification and impact assessment; and land based measures concurrent with the ECA adoption.
