Motion in the Making to Cap Marine Sulfur Levels

Motion in the Making to  Cap Marine Sulfur Levels Motion in the Making to  Cap Marine Sulfur Levels

A draft bill on the global limit for sulphur in fuel oil used by ships has been recently prepared and proposed to the Cabinet for approval.
Jointly drafted by the Department of Environment and Ports and Maritime Organization, the bill involves the limit that the International Maritime Organization recently set for the level of sulfur in ship fuel oil, DOE’s official website reported.
The IMO’s new regulation, which will reduce the current global limit for sulfur content of ships’ fuel oil from 3.50% mass by mass (m/m) to 0.50%, is set to take effect as of January 1, 2020.
The due date is the IMO’s deadline for all nations to adjust to the new regulations.
