    Source Implementation Mechanism

     FUELS Short term:

    • Reduced fuel sulfur level in SO2 Emission Control Areas (SECAs) from 1.5% to 0.5%.

    • Include SO2 /PM related health effects in addition to impacts on air, sea, and land as justification for SECA.

    • Enhance SECA program to high ship-traffic areas in Mediterranean, North Atlantic and Pacific Rim.

    • Regional limits in coastal places, inland channels and at ports.

    Medium term:

    0.5% sulfur fuel worlwide

    Long term:

    Synchronization with on-road diesel fuels (500 ppm to 10-15 ppm, in the long-term)

    • International requirements (IMO)

     NEW ENGINES Short term:

    • NO2 standards 40% percent below present IMO standards (Year 2000 level).

    • PM levels

    • Encourage new technology developments

    Medium term:

    • NO2 standards 95% percent below present IMO standards (Year 2000 level)

    • PM levels further cut down

    • Encourage new technology developments

    Long term:

    Encourage the application of advanced systems, particularly near-zero emission technologies in potential applications.

    • International standards (IMO)

     NEW VESSELS Short term:

    • Adopt global requirements for on-land power standardization.

    • All newly-built ships with onshore electricity capability, particularly ferries and cruise ship.

    Long term: Promote the utilization of modern ship-design principles for potentially efficient applications

    • Promoting contracting of cleanest carriers.

    • Environmentally sensitive fees and charges.

    • International standards (IMO).

     EXISTING VESSELS AND ENGINES Short term:

    • Apply emissions operating standards by ship class and engine properties depending on observed retrofit potential.

    • Study viability and potential benefits of programs to promote early vessel retirement and environmentally-viable decommissioning.

    • International levels (IMO)

    • Promoting contracting of cleanest carriers

    • Environmentally sensitive fees and charges.

     AT PORT Short term:

    Select strategy that provides benefits for optimum reduction of emissions, based on local fuel availability and environmental application of electricity power generation

    • Onshore electricity

    • Least sulfur on-road fuel and NO2 and PM post-treatment.

    Medium term: Market-based approaches to promote low- or non-carbon fuel sources to service onshore electricity for berthed vessels

    • Port authorization needed.

    • Promoting contracting of cleanest carriers.

    • Environmentally sensitive fees and charges.

     GHG Short term:

    • Implement inventory of GHG emission and fleet baseline

    • Market-based methods for ships.

    • Implement fuel economy requirements by ship type and engine properties for new vessels.

    Medium term:

    Implement fuel economy requirements by vessel type and engine class for existing ships.

    • Promoting contracting of cleanest carriers

    • Environmentally sensitive fees and charges.

    • Cap and trade program for maritime industry alone.

    • International requirements (IMO).
