EnviSuM study in Gothenburg proves sulphur emissions reduced by 70%

21 Dec 2016

The Sniffer is a measuring station located at the entrance to the port of Gothenburg, the partners of the EnviSuM project use to remotely measure emissions of ships passing by. Following the introduction of the Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA) regulations, a recent study by EnviSuM revealed that the port of Gothenburg experienced a major reduction in sulphur emissions by 70 % in only a year.

Twelve partners from Sweden, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Poland, Germany and Denmark cooperate in the EnviSuM project to check on the effects of the latest sulphur limit tightening on human health, environment and the economy. The project also looks into news types of emissions resulting e.g. from new fuels being introduced to the shipping industry. The project co-financed by Interreg Baltic Sea Region is a flagship project of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
