Environmental Engineering Committee
The environmental engineering committee (EC) is made up of panels that address persistent and emerging environmental issues: environmental management (EC-7), greenhouse gas (EC – 11), underwater noise (EC-14, formed in 2019), and the blue economy (EC-15, formed in 2020). Former panels include: oily wastewater and bilgewater, ocean renewable energy, emergent technologies, and marine vessel environmental performance (MVEP). An aim of the environmental committee is to coordinate with other T&R committee panels, such as OC-10 Offshore Renewables in the Offshore Committee and SP-13 Environmental Health, and Safety in the Ship Production (NSRP) Committee, who also work on environmental issues so as to all work collaboratively and efficiently.
T&R Bulletins published by the committee:· 6-01 Guide to Diagnosing Contaminants in Oily Bilgewater: Operation and Maintenance of Bilgewater Treatment Systems (2009)
· 6-02 MVEP Guide: Energy Efficiency -1: Hull and propeller, maintenance and operation (2013)
· 6-02 MVEP Guide Air Emissions -1: Sulfur Oxides (SOx) (2014)
