Was Denmark taking a nap at the IMO's environmental meeting?

Denmark, along with several other countries claiming to fight for the environment, could have been more firm in its negoatiations with the IMO regarding new environmental requirements, says a series og suppliers and NGOs ShippingWatch has spoken to.

The Danish authorities, represented by the Danish Maritime Authority, the Danish Nature Agency, and the Danish Environmental Agency, could have acted tougher at the IMO environmental negiatiations last week. That's the opinion of both suppliers, shipowners, and NGOs following the change of two key environmental decisions regarding ballast water and NOx emissions at the meeting.

The changed decisions have resulted in anger and disappointment from the suppliers of ballast water cleaning systems and manufacturers of NOx reducing technologies, because the changes mean that the suppliers are now left with products with massive development budgets, which probably can't be sold for years now.
