Studies of emissions of organic particles from shipping
Research Project , 2019

Aim: To increase the scientific understanding of emissions of organic particles from ships in operation and investigate methods how to abate and control these emissions.

 

Goal:

Analyze the chemical composition of organic particles in exhaust gases from ships

Develop a new simple instrument for ship emission measurements of organic particles

Measure emissions of organic particle and gases from ships in real traffic

Investigate available abatement technology for reduction of particle emissions from ships

Investigate the possibility of carrying out compliance control
