Assessing Emissions Cuts in North Atlantic ECA Across Varied Compliance

This study evaluates the feasibility and potential environmental benefits of establishing the North Atlantic Emission Control Area (AtlECA), aimed at reducing ship emissions in the North Atlantic Ocean. The AtlECA would enforce stringent regulations to curb sulfur oxides (SOx), fine particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and black carbon (BC) emissions. The geographical scope includes the territorial seas and exclusive economic zones (EEZs) of Spain, Portugal, France, the United...

Korea Successfully Demonstrates LNG-Ammonia Dual-Fuel Engine
