News: New Marine Diesel Regs Adopted by EPA

Last month the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it is adopting emission standards for new marine diesel engines that will be installed on vessels flagged or registered in the U.S. While the new regulations apply mainly to large oceangoing ships, they are merely the first strike in a series of moves designed to reduce emissions from all marine vessels The near-term, Tier 1 standards in this rule are equivalent to the internationally negotiated emission limits for oxides of nitrogen (NOx). These standards will go into effect in 2004 and are based on readily available emission-control technology. EPA also said that it would undertake another rulemaking in a few years to consider a second tier of more stringent standards. The Tier 1 standards apply to marine diesel engines manufactured January 1, 2004 or later if they will be installed on vessels flagged or registered in the United States1. The Tier 1 standards will apply to older engines only if they are converted from land-based to marine engines or they are installed on a new vessel. This final rule applies to "new" marine diesel engines and to new marine vessels that include marine diesel engines. In general, a "new" marine diesel engine or a new marine vessel is one that is produced for sale in the United States or that is imported into the United States


Great Lakes Steamship Repower Incentive Program

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Direct final rule. SUMMARY: EPA is taking direct final action to simplify an existing provision in our marine diesel engine program that is intended to encourage owners of Great Lakes steamships to repower those steamships with cleaner marine diesel engines.
