Emission Evaluation of Marine Traffic

Air pollution is an issue that has been widespread concern in all sectors of society. The pollutants, including toxic gases, greenhouse gases, and particulate matters, have permeated every aspect of our daily life and have a negative impact on human health, agriculture, industry, and climate change. Found by hard and thorough search, the human activities account for the majority and the transport sector is one of the most challenging areas, when it comes to abatement of local air pollution. Marine traffic, which covers over 80% of international trade, is mainly powered by cheap fuel oil with high impurities, so it will affect the social welfare of the coastal areas. Various measures that can be adopted to alleviate the problem to customize suitable regulations through research of the emission from shipping should be conducted. Also, the emission evaluation is critical to measure the efficiency of the regulation. Therefore, following the main steps of Ship Traffic Emissions Assessment Model, we summarize an activity-based framework of shipping emission evaluation that takes advantage of data from automatic identification system.
