    Abstract

    Ship emissions have a significant negative impact on human health, environment and climate. Consequently, the IMO has implemented regulations to reduce emissions of sulphur and nitrogen oxides, and new emission regulations e.g. for black carbon emissions are anticipated. Reliable information concerning the impact of different emission control technologies of ship emissions on health, environment and climate is needed. We present particulate matter (PM), black carbon (BC) and non-volatile particle number (above 23 nm) emissions for several marine engines, fuels and emission control options in comparison to road transport. We realized that knowledge of total PN emissions from modern ships is practically lacking, although it would be essential for assessing the health and environmental impacts of ship emissions. This represents a serious gap in our knowledge. We also discussed uncertainties relating to exhaust emission measurements in controlled and uncontrolled conditions
