Scrubbers: A False Solution to the IMO’s Sulphur Cap

This webinar will focus on how the use of scrubbers – also known as EGCS (exhaust gas cleaning systems) – have turned global shipping’s air pollution problem into an ocean pollution problem, and why use of scrubbers may conflict with UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea).

Presentations followed by Q&A.
