This paper presents the impact of different scenarios of future emissions from ships taking into account the implementation of the Directive 2012/33/EU as far as the sulphur content in fuels is concerned in the port of Brindisi.

Ship emissions are estimated through the MEET methodology using appropriate emission factors for manoeuvring and hoteling phases. Numerical simulations of NOx, SO2 and primary PM emissions and dispersion are performed by means of the mesoscale model BOLCHEM coupled with ADMS-Urban dispersion model.

Abstract

This paper presents the impact of different scenarios of future emissions from ships taking into account the implementation of the Directive 2012/33/EU as far as the sulphur content in fuels is concerned in the port of Brindisi. This is one of the most important of the Adriatic Sea, located in the south-east coast of Italy. Ship emissions are estimated through the MEET methodology using appropriate emission factors for manoeuvring and hoteling phases. Numerical simulations of NOx, SO2 and primary PM emissions and dispersion are performed by means of the mesoscale model BOLCHEM coupled with ADMS-Urban dispersion model. This study extends our previous work presented at the 15th Harmo Conference in Madrid, by considering different sulphur content in the fuel oil to analyse the impact of future emission scenarios on the foreseen reduction of pollutant concentrations and assess the potential improvement of air quality in the port area.
