MOL Invests in Scrubber for Car Carriers to Meet At-Berth Exhaust Regs

Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines is funding the development of a new-generation marine exhaust treatment system specifically for use on its car carriers to meet the pending air pollution regulations in California, which include extending current at-berth regulations to nearly all ships using the state’s ports. MOL will be working with a California-based company Clean Air Engineering Maritime to promote the development and use of this exhaust treatment system as a new means to prevent air pollution while also studying the use of shore power to meet the California regulations.
