The Danish Minister for the Environment Kirsten Brosbøl will listen to the Danish Shipowners' Association, the Danish Ecological Council, and all the other organizations who in a letter in late April called for tighter control of the new sulphur regulations that will come into force on January 1st 2015, the minister tells ShippingWatch in an email.

"I appreciate that the Danish Shipowners' Association and the other organizations are being constructive, and that they are ready to join the collaboration toward making shipping more environmental. I will now look at their eight proposals to make the controls more efficient. They present some interesting ideas, and many of them fall in line with what we're already working on, so it's absolutely possible that several of the proposals can be realized," says Kirsten Brosbøl.
