Collaborative Projects

CAPNAV project Characterization of Particulate Emissions from Ships

Purpose:To determine the fine particle emissions produced by marine engines from intermediate-sized ships serving the Ponant islands (Sein, Ushant).

The aim of this project is to:

  • Define and test in the laboratory instrumentation for on-board measurements.
  • Quantify stack emissions dynamically, in particular during port manoeuvers, with real-time acquisition of ship parameters.
  • Test innovative emission reduction solutions: with marine diesel additive or LNG propulsion (Liquid Natural Gas) installed on the Brittany Ferries ship HONFLEUR.
  • Conduct air quality measurement on board, to evaluate exposure to passengers and crew to fine particles.
