the mayor of Civitavecchia has sped up the generalized application of the maximum sulfur tenor in marine fuel pairs to 0.10%

Cozzolino, that it has asked the collaboration for the others 54 Italian harbour Municipalities, has exhorted also the institution of new area ECA in the Mediterranean

the mayor of Civitavecchia, Antonio Cozzolino, has sent a letter to the Prime Minister of the ministers in order to ask urgent provisions for the reduction for the pollution from marine transport being sped up the application for all the zones of sea of the maximum sulfur tenor in naval fuel pairs 0.10% in mass.

In the missive the mayor has expressed "the worry of the coastal communities in confronts of the increasing phenomenon of the pollution legacy to the marine transport, fear - it has emphasized - justified if it is considered that in many cities of port the standards of the previewed quality of the air are not respected from decree legislative n. the 155/2010 and in others sanitary data reveal the high mortality rates legacies to the diseases correlated to the pollution".

In the letter addressed to Paolo Gentiloni. the mayor of Civitavecchia has evidenced that "in the within of program "CAFE - Clean Air for Europe" of the European Community has been estimated that from the 2020 coming nitrogen oxide and sulfureous anhydride emissions from the marine transport they will exceed the emissions of the total of the terrestrial sources and based on relative directive 2012/33/UE to the sulfur tenor of fuel for marine use "the emissions produced from the marine transport due to I use it of fuel for marine use to high sulfur tenor contribute to the atmospheric pollution as sulfureous anhydride and particulate matter, that they are harmful to the human health and the atmosphere and contribute to the formation of acid warehouses"".

Remembering moreover that "I decree legislative 16 July 2014 n. 112 of performance of directive 2012/33/UE, than modification the Code of the Atmosphere, imposes already from the 2015 maximum sulfur tenor in naval fuel of 0.10% for the areas of control of the emissions already instituted, that is in the Baltic Sea, the Sea of the North and the English Channel, while for the other European seas the sulfur tenor maximum tax is only of 0.50% and moreover within the 2020" Cozzolino he has found that "little he imports that the ships to the mooring must already use the fuel to 0.10%, as the maximum emission of the smoke verification in navigation and particularly when the ships carry out the departure and landing place maneuvers".

"For this reason - it has continued the mayor - considered that based on I always decree legislative 16 July 2014 n. 112 "From 1° January 2018 for the Adriatic Sea and Ionian sea and from 1° January 2020 for the other zones of sea, apply to the maximum sulfur tenor pairs to 0.10% in mass on condition that the Member States next of the European Union the same zones of sea have previewed the application of equal or inferior sulfur tenors", are to ask them - Cozzolino to Gentiloni has written - than for all the zones for sea are applied as soon as possible to the maximum sulfur tenor in naval fuel pairs to 0.10% in mass, stipulating specific agreements with the Member States next of the European Union same zones of sea and emanating appropriate norms".

Moreover the mayor of Civitavecchia has asked the Prime Minister "that makes promoter, based on the procedures of Appendix III for Attached YOU for convenziona the MARPOL, the introduction of a new Area of control of Emissions (ECA) in the Mediterranean, that it comprises areas of control of the emissions of sulfur and particulate matter and nitrogen oxides".

"cannot be ignored - such demand has explained Cozzolino motivating - than the natural one and logical evolution of the adoption of a less polluting fuel in a zone of sea is represented by the institution of an area of control of emissions based on Attached YOU see again from the 10 Marpol convention which took effect July 2010, than, beyond more introducing limits tightening for the fuel for marine use, it defines the areas of control of the oxide emissions of nitrogen and the areas of control of the oxide emissions of sulfur and particulate matter, so like the criteria and the procedures for the designation of new areas of control ofthe emissions. Considered that the Mediterranean is one of the seas more sold the world - it has observed Cozzolino - the institution of a control zone would undoubtedly have a strong positive impact on the quality of the air of the countries of the Basin, like also evidenced in the informative note of the European Parliament of the 2012 "impact of an eventual extension to level EU of the zones of control of the emissions of sulfur to all the European shoreline"".

Cozzolino has specified that, beyond having sent the letter to the Prime Minister, the communities have asked also the collaboration for the others 54 harbour Municipalities as such thematic one hit on all that cohabit with harbour truths.
