The article offers a look at new controls that cover the containment of emissions from storage vessels and ships are exercising the experts in the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Service Terminal Rotterdam director Bernard Muller met with an inventor, professor Wiegert Partier, who had created a new scrubber technology. Rather than paying more for fuel, it may be an option to scrub a ship's boiler emissions to remove sulphur dioxide to meet the new requirements, says Muller.
