BIMCO president blasts ill-judged regulations

There is evidence of a growing push-back by shipowners organisations as the 2020 sulphur cap deadline looms and the full range of possible consequences sinks in. BIMCO president Anastasios Papagiannopoulos has urged owners to make their voice heard more clearly but also throw their support behind moves that can mitigate some of the worst risks of measures that, he said, had been passed without proper analysis of consequences

Anastasios Papagiannopoulos had ballast water management and the 2020 sulphur cap in mind as he complains that the debate on making shipping greener has been hijacked by opportunists, environmentalists and media
