Starting from 1 January 2020, the maximum sulfur content worldwide allowed in naval fuels will reduce from the current 3.5% to 0.5% and tens of thousands of ships will be affected by this new rule, while the limit still more stringent than the 0.1% is already in place for Emission Control Areas in North America and Europe. The shipowners are studying the various options to ensure the compliance of their ships with these new regulations, however some months after the entry into force the unknowns, both technical and logistic, not to mention those of an economic nature, have not been completely dissipated
The Sulfur Cap 2020, with a 7-fold reduction in the sulfur content in a single pass, is seen by many as a “turning point in the sector” and, if placed in the broader perspective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions
(GHG) produced by ships, represents only the starting point of a new path that will lead to significant changes in the naval propulsion of the years to come.
