IMO Moves Forward with Ban on Vessels Carrying High-Sulphur Fuel

IMO Moves Forward with Ban on Vessels Carrying High-Sulphur Fuel
The International Maritime Organization said it approved on Friday an amendment that would ban ships unequipped to strip sulphur from carrying high-sulphur fuel from 2020 – when new sulphur-content limits come into effect.

New 2020 limits cut the amount of sulphur in the fuel that ships worldwide are allowed to use, from 3.5 to 0.5 percent by 2020. However, ships that have installed scrubbers that can remove sulphur as fuel is burned can continue to use higher-sulphur fuel

The amendment to MARPOL Annex VI approved on Friday would make it illegal for ships without scrubbers to carry fuels above the sulphur limit in their supply systems, but would allow any ship to carry higher sulphur fuels as cargo

The approval is the second to last step required in order to formalise the ban on carrying fuel oil – which is itself a step aimed at making it easier to enforce the stricter sulphur limits.
