Safer and cleaner recreational crafts

News in RSS

The European Commission proposed new legislation that will clarify the responsibility of economic operators and make the use of recreational crafts more friendly for the environment in marinas.

Studies show that some lakes and seashores can experience significant concentrations of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions in peak hours resulting from some six million of recreational crafts cruising in Europe.

The proposed revision of the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) sets stricter limits for NOx, hydrocarbons (HC) and particulate matters for new recreational crafts.
