Cannes to ban most polluting cruise ships

Cannes to ban most polluting cruise ships - Cannes, France’s fourth-biggest cruise ship port, has announced it will ban the most polluting cruise ships from next year in a bid to boost air quality in the city. The ban will target ships that do not respect a 0.1% cap on sulphur in their fuel and could stop some passengers from disembarking in the city famous for its film festival. Under the European Union’s clean air policy, the cap is already enforced in Baltic, North Sea and Channel ports and it may be extended to the Mediterranean.
