Ports restrict the use of scrubbers ahead of Sulphur 2020

Exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), more commonly referred to as scrubbers, are an accepted way to comply with the upcoming Sulphur 2020 regulations, but several ports have banned the use of open-loop scrubbers in their waters. 

In January 2019, the Port of Fujairah decided to ban the use of open-loop scrubbers in its waters.

According to North P&I, Singapore’s Maritime Port Authority (MPA) has become the latest port to ban the discharge of wash water from open-loop scrubbers in its waters, joining a growing list of authorities that have or will prohibit the use of scrubbers, or placed conditions on their use.
