maritime -- Notice to Vessel Operators Regarding Changes to the Research Exemption Process under the California Ocean-Going Vessel Fuel Regulation. Posted: 01 Aug 2017 12:58:07
The California Air Resources Board has issued Marine Notice 2017-1 to vessel operators providing guidance for the use of the “Temporary Experimental or Research Exemption” (research exemption) in the California Ocean-Going Vessel Fuel Regulation (OGV Fuel Regulation). This Marine Notice discusses some changes in the process for vessel operators applying for the research exemption. These changes include the timelines for existing exemptions to expire, and for the transition from the current expedited process for each vessel visit to the more comprehensive process detailed in the OGV Fuel Regulation. Marine Notice 2017-1, as well as other marine notices, advisories, and alerts for the OGV Fuel Regulation, is available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/marinevess/ogv/ogvadvisories.htm Other information for marine vessel programs is available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/ports/marinevess/ogv.htm If you have any questions on Marine Notice 2017-1 or the OGV Fuel Regulation, please contact Lynsay Carmichael, Air Resources Engineer, by phone at (916) 327-5784, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Paul Milkey, Staff Air Pollution Specialist, by phone at (916) 327-2957, or by email at email@example.com. Background: CARB adopted the OGV Fuel Regulation in 2008 to protect public health by controlling emissions of diesel particulate matter (diesel PM), particulate matter (PM), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and oxides of sulfur (SOx) from ocean-going vessels. The OGV Fuel Regulation requires the use of cleaner burning low sulfur marine distillate fuels by vessel main engines, auxiliary engines, and auxiliary boilers within 24 nautical miles of the California coastline.
