    Station Pier Air Quality Monitoring

    The BCNA has written to the EPA requesting further air quality monitoring at Station Pier. We are grateful for the work done by the Victorian Ports Corporation Melbourne (VPCM) in 2016/17, but this work was not comprehensive enough to reassure members that air quality meets Australian standards. A second monitoring station on one of the towers would have been necessary to check air quality at heights above the monitoring station on Station Pier.

    The Australian Government sets standards for fuel emissions from ships. This is currently at 3.5% sulphur content, but is scheduled to fall to 0.5% from 1 January 2020. The BCNA has written to the Commonwealth Minister for Infrastructure and Transport urging the Australian Government adhere to this timetable.
