The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) has published a new technical report that provides recommendations on technologies, practices and fuels that control and reduce sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions.

Limitations on SOx are currently in place with more stringent regulations coming in the near future. Designed to assist with SOx management and reduction on ocean-going vessels, Marine Vessel Environmental Performance (MVEP) Assessment Guide Air Emissions: Sulfur Oxides (SOx) provides options for assessing emissions performance along with a standard methodology for determining SOx output from a vessel.

The technical reportwas written by Mark West and Brian Ackerman, reviewed by the SNAME Technical and Research Panel EC-10 and approved by the Society’s Environmental Engineering Committee.

Identified as Technical and Research Bulletin 6-2 MVEP AE-1, the 495 page report has been published electronically and can be ordered on the SNAME website, ($40, $20 for SNAME members) or by contacting Kristin Walker at [email protected] or calling 1+703.997.6710.
