STACK GAS EMISSIONS FROM OCEANGOING SHIPS: REGULATIONS, SIGNIFICANCE, AND CONTROL METHODS.

Regulations applicable throughout the U.S. for ship stack gas emissions and comparable shoreside emissions were reviewed. No Federal regulations for ship stack gas emissions exist at this time. However, many state and local regulations are being imposed on the shipping industry. The significance of the stack gas problem was examined by reviewing the types of ships and fuel used, the types of emissions of concern, the overall contribution of pollutants by oceangoing ships, and the contribution of vessels in a port area. Control methods for the various air pollutants, including automatic combustion control systems, are discussed.
