These regulations require the reduction of nitrous oxides (NOX), sulfur oxides (SOX), and particulate matter (PM) emissions from ships. Additionally, the U.S. has established an emission control area (ECA) for the U.S. under MARPOL Annex VI that further limits NOX and SOX emissions from ships. Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations and MARPOL Annex VI apply to both new and existing ships and will require the commercial maritime industry to implement new technology that will reduce NOX, SOX and PM emissions from all ships. In developing the ship air emission regulations, the Coast Guard and the Environmental Protection Agency worked with industry and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate emission control technology for ships.1 At this time, the Coast Guard and the Environmental Protection Agency seek additional information about new and existing technology for reducing these air emissions from cargo or passenger 1 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ‘‘Regulatory Impact Analysis: Control of Air Pollution from Category 3 Marine Diesel Engines, EPA–420–R–09–019, December 2009.

It also seeks to identify impediments, including any laws or regulations, to implementing this technology. We are particularly interested in information that includes details about: —Data and analysis from the maritime community concerning the state of their air emission reduction technologies; —The technology relating to aftertreatment systems, alternative fuels, advanced engine design, auxiliary equipment, and other pertinent processes; —The projected or measured percent reduction of air emissions achieved from specific equipment; —Any adverse impacts, safety implications, or any system integration effects with other shipboard equipment; —Potential capital and operating costs or savings of the equipment’s implementation. Please consider the following questions when responding to this notice: (A) What new technology exists for reducing air emissions from cargo or passenger ships? (B) What is the availability of such technology? (C) What methods or equipment are currently under development that may be able to meet the MARPOL Annex VI requirements? (D) Are methods or equipment being applied for similar purposes in other transportation modes or industries (e.g., military, rail, over-the-road truck industries, manufacturing, power) that merit investigation for use aboard vessels?
