China and India are the world's largest coal burners so they emitted the most sulfur oxide that can cause acid rain and can harm foliage and ecosystems exposed to the oxides.
The programs, called Vessel Speed Reduction Program at Port of Los Angeles and Green Flag Program at Port of Long Beach, urge vessel operators to slow down to 12 knots or less within a certain range of the ports to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOX), and sulfur oxide (SOX) in coastal areas to conserve coastal environment, and offer annual rewards to vessel operators that achieve extraordinary compliance percentages.
He said that coal combustion generates four main sources of pollution like sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide, carbon dioxide and particular matter which damage land water and air.

Chief amongst them were the rapid replacement of the major equipment that had been damaged and the sourcing of low sulfur cracker feedstock and a special Sulfur Oxide compounds removal catalyst, which in combination would allow the refinery to operate without the WGS while repairs were made.
A SWEDISH MANUFACTURER WILL SUPPLY SULFUR OXIDE scrubbers that will let two luxury cruise ships continue to burn heavy fuel oil and still comply with increasingly strict emissions requirements.
The researchers detected two kinds of sulfur oxide, both of which contain radioactive sulfur-35.
Sulfur oxide emissions have been linked to smog and health impacts on humans.
Biofuel engines are friendly to the environment as they reduce the emission of harmful sulfur oxide and particulate matter.
Further, emission of sulfur oxide and carbon monoxide, as well as soot is drastically reduced; hence recycled biodiesel fuel is touted as "clean" fuel.
Since the program began in 2004, AMP noted that it has received over 50 vessel calls, eliminating more than 80 tons of pollutants, with an average reduction of 95 percent in nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur oxide (SOx) and particulate matter (PM) 10 per vessel call.
FuelCell Energy said it intends to donate emissions credits equivalent to 1,700 pounds of nitrogen oxide (NOx) reductions and 4,800 pounds of sulfur oxide (SOx), and other emissions reductions resulting from 1,170 megawatt (MW) hours of fuel cell-generated power from the company's Danbury and Torrington, CT plants.
