Experts from across the maritime industry will address the recent decision taken by the MEPC to adopt IMO Tier III NOx standards at the 10th Integer Emissions Summit Europe 2014. The conference will take place on the 17th-19th June, at the Hilton Hotel Düsseldorf.
The decision to implement the standards was taken at the MEPC (Marine Environmental Protection Committee) last week. The standards apply to new marine diesel engines installed on a ship constructed on or after the 1st January 2016, that operates in the North American ECA and the US Caribbean Sea ECA. Further amendments also require vessels to comply if operating in an area that is designated as a future ECA, according to an adoption date set by the MEPC.
The speakers, representing government bodies, fleet operators, leading OEMs and industry associations, will address the impact of the standards and the necessary technology options to comply with the requirements.
Confirmed speakers include;
- Joseph McCarney, Chairman, IACCESA (International Association of Catalytic Control of Ship Emissions to Air
- Edmund Hughes, Marine Environment Division, International Maritime Organisation (IMO)
- Monika Griefahn, Chief Sustainability Officer, AIDA Cruises

The conference will bring together over 250 attendees from across the diesel emissions supply chain to gain vital information and participate in discussions on vital issues that shape the industry.
