Members’ exclusive: CEDA Environment Commission's briefing note on open-loop scrubbers


Just like our members, the CEDA Board, commissions and working groups, have been continuing their work despite the COVID-19 containment measures.

The CEDA Environment Commission (CEC) met on 23rd April in a virtual meeting room… instead of enjoying the hospitality of the Port of Hamburg. Although we were deprived of the usual social contacts, and face-to-face discussions, we managed to achieve a lot in a few hours.

One of the topics discussed, at the meeting, was the use of open-loop scrubbers and the implications for dredging and the disposal of treated wash water. The points discussed have been summarised in a Briefing Note which has been made available exclusively for CEDA members and can be downloaded after login.
CEC will keep a watching brief on the topic and will decide, at a later date, if it should be discussed further by a dedicated working group and the publication of a CEDA information or position paper.
