Environmental Agency rejects Swedish scrubber concerns

The Danish authorities see no reason to worry about washwater discharged from open loop scrubbers, as an agency under the Swedish authorities has otherwise warned against.

Unifeeder is one of the carriers that will have to comply with the new sulphur rgulations.

There is at this time no reason to be concerned about washwater from open loop scrubbers, says Dorte Kubel, specialized consultant at the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), who has been involved in a cost-benefit analysis performed by COWI for the Danish Shipowners' Association and the EPA.

"On the basis of this report we have no reason to believe there's any problems with the quality of scrubbers. There aren't that many right now, as they're on their way into the market, but we don't see this as a reason to ban the scrubbers," she says.
