CSA 2020: Ports could revoke scrubber bans

According to the Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 (CSA 2020), it has received written approvals and ‘no objection’ letters from several port authorities indicating that they have no intention of banning the use of open-loop scrubbers in their waters.

Members of the CSA 2020 executive committee presented research to the port authorities that indicated that the wastewater generated by the exhaust gas cleaning process was environmentally acceptable and well within regulatory limits.

The organisation said that it has received ‘no objection’ letters from more than 20 ports covering Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australasia.
