Ive just been superficially looking at the web page Statista, which gives figures for ships around the world by type amongst others.

What is a "Dirty" Panamax vessel? Also a "small dirty tanker"? Does this relate to emissions?

By "dirty" is meant the type of oil product that these ships can transport. "Clean" is considered stuff like gasoline, naphtha and kerosine, while dirty products are usually things like gasoil and all sorts of fuel oils. So a dirty tanker can carry dirty products and crude oil while a clean tanker (that will need some coating first because of the more corrosive nature of clean products) will carry clean products, but after a proper tank cleaning will also be able to carry dirty products or crude. 

This is a very general reply to give you an idea. Further reading could probably answer more of your questions.

Ahh, thanks Pieter,

I was never sure what angle they were talking about whether it was the product carried or emissions.

Clean product tankers have dirty emissions...
