IMO 2020 Fuel Legislation

IMO 2020 Fuel Legislation: Update

 From 1st January, 2020, a global regulation will come into force changing the type of fuel all shipping lines must use.

The aim of the regulation is to reduce air pollution from ships. Whereas today ships can use fuel with up to 3.5% sulphur content, the new global sulphur cap will be 0.5%. Currently the cost of 0.5% sulphur fuel is higher than that of the present fuel used by the industry.
