Aim: To extend the activities of the EnviSum project by including collaboration with Russian scientist and policymakers.
Objective: Carry out ship emission measurements during a campaign in Sankt Petersburg and air quality modelling to investigate how this affects the health of people.
1) Measured emissions of pollutants from individual ships in the Sankt Petersburg area.
2) Comparions of the measurements to ship emission models.
3) Air quality modelling to investigate how shipping contributes to these pollutants in Sankt Petersburg and to quantify the efficiency of environmental policies.
EnviSum is a flagship project in PA ship and it is coordinated by University of Turku and it involves 12 partners and 17 associated organisations. The project results will provide policy makers and authorities with tools and recommendations for the development of future environmental regulations, and the shipping sector with guidance to support future investment decisions.
