Abstract: In this study, web-based data collection software was developed to monitor emissions from ships. Furthermore; NOx, CO2, SO2, VOC, CO and PM emissions for June, July, August of 2017 has been calculated and monitored in real-time by considering year of construction, gross tonnage (GRT), main engine power, revolution and power of auxiliary engines, number of arrivals and cruising, manoeuvring and berthing time of all the ships. Moreover, emissions are categorised according to ship types, tonnage and flags. As a result, NOx, SO2, CO2, VOC, PM and CO emissions from main and auxiliary engines were calculated as 538.8 tons, 376.14 tons, 27,332.03 tons, 33.11 tons, 53.68 tons and 22.1 tons, respectively with 1,032 movement of 323 different ships that arrived in Ambarlı Port between the dates of 25 May 2017 and 22 August 2017.
Keywords: global warming; port emissions; green shipping; ship emissions.
