The use of Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) in the maritime industry is relatively new and there is a general lack of technical understanding and operational experience. MARPOL Annex VI sulphur oxide (SOx) compliance can only be achieved through the use of either low sulphur fuels or an EGCS. Due to the high cost of low sulphur fuels, there is an interest in continuing to use high sulphur fuels which would require the use of an EGCS. This information paper provides practical guidance for the selection, installation and use of SOx EGCS.
