Paper title: Establishment of NOx Measurement and Certification System for Small Ships



A Kilic, Bandirma Onyedi Eylul University, Turkey


Measurement of NOx emissions from small ship diesel engines is technically quite complex and at most times it is very difficult or impossible to perform on board. Hence, there is need to build and model an applicable measurement and certification system compliant with NOx measurement rules of NOx Technical Code. The system needs to perform efficiently, economically and also need to have adequate elasticity for ships that cannot meet NOx criteria in order to fulfil the requirements of the Code. The aim of this study is the formation of a technical and legislative infrastructure about safe and efficient measurement and certification of NOx emissions of main and auxiliary engine in the Merchant ships, in accordance with Regulation 13 and NOx Technical Code related to the control of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and which takes place in Annex VI appendix about prevention of air pollution caused by ships in MARPOL 73/78 Convention.
