Spot sampling and analysis of a ship’s fuel is becoming increasingly common as a means for port state control officers to verify the actual sulphur content of the fuel in use. The shipping industry is facing increasingly stricter air emission limits all over the world.
Ships trading in designated emission control areas will have to use on board fuel oil with a sulphur content of no more than 0.10% from 1 January 2015, against the limit of 1.
The shipping industry is fully committed to total compliance with the 0.1% sulphur in fuel requirements, in Emission Control Areas, from January 2015. And
Changes to refinery practices, increased slow steaming and controls on sulphur content mean fuel testing and treatment is critical to efficient operations PRESS RELEASE – Wilhelmsen Ships Service (WSS) has [...] The post WSS Urges O...
Sulphur dioxide emissions from shipping have sharply decreased in EU ports thanks to an EU policy which limits sulphur content in fuels for ships at berth or at anchor in ports.
