The study, commissioned by Transport & Environment (T&E), identifies for the first time the policy options available at the EU level to regulate ship NOx emissions in the EU seas and compares them with the measures to be taken under the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). The study, carried out by IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute and CE Delft, reveals that a levy on nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions with revenues earmarked to fund the uptake of NOx abatement measures is the most promising tool, in addition to NECAs, to reduce these ship emissions in EU seas.
