Immission-side effects of emissions from shipping and port operations on nitrogen oxide pollution.
CLINSH deals with the infulence of emissions from inland vessels on air qualtity and the effectiveness of various technical measures to reduce these emissions. The North Rhine-Westphalian State Office for Nature, Environment and Consumer Protection (LANUV NRW) contributes to CLINSH with detailed studies on air quality on the Rhine and specifically in the ports of Duisburg and Neuss, with a detailed analysis of the causes of pollution and with "real-drive" studies of the effects of exhaust-technical measures on its laboratory ship under real conditions.
The first results of these investigations can be found in the LANUV technical report "Emissions measurements on the laboratory ship Max Pruss after equipping with an SCRT system".
In the the following article.pdf the results of the extensive investigations on air quality on the Rhine and in the large inland ports in North Rhine Westphalia are presented.
