Clean Arctic Alliance calls on immediate ban of HFO in Arctic waters

In light of climate change and its impact on the Arctic region, Dr Sian Prior, Lead Advisor to the Clean Arctic Alliance, urges the shipping industry to reduce, as soon as possible, ship speed to cut CO2 emissions globally, while also reduce black carbon emissions by changing to cleaner fuels in the Arctic.

Clean Arctic Alliance calls for ban of HFO use in Iceland’s waters

In light of Iceland’s Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources decision, which bans the use of fuel oil with more than 0.1% sulphur content for ships operating in its territorial waters, Dr Sian Prior, Lead Advisor to the Clean Arctic Alliance, highlighted that the Alliance although supports this decision, they are in favour of generally banning HFO use and carriage as fuel.

Key Sustainability Challenges for the Maritime Industry

Danish Maritime sees sustainability challenges for the maritime sector as commercial rather than technical. Solutions are available either in the market or as proven pilot projects, but wide implementation is lagging due to split incentives and delays in legislation, argues Jenny Braat. 

Iceland considers applying 0.1% limit on marine fuels sulphur content

The Icelandic Ministry for the Environment and Natural Resources has made a draft to amend current regulations regarding the sulphur content of fuels. If adopted, the amendments will not allow the use of heavy fuel oil within Icelandic territorial waters from the start of 2020, with fuels with only 0.1% sulphur content being allowed.

Clean Arctic Alliance calls for reducing shipping black carbon impacts on Arctic

The Clean Arctic Alliance urged the IMO Member States to reduce the impact of black carbon emissions from international shipping on the Arctic environment, as the UN body gathers in London for a meeting of its MEPC74. During the meeting, a number of issues, including black carbon emissions and heavy fuel oil in the Arctic will feature on the agenda.

Infographic: LNG reduces GHG emissions by 21%

SEA\LNG and SGMF launched a study according to which GHG reductions of up to 21% are achievable now from LNG as a marine fuel, in comparison to the existent oil-based marine fuels over the entire life-cycle from Well-to-Wake (WtW). The study also confirms that emissions from SOx, NOx and particulate matter, are close to zero when using LNG compared with current conventional oil-based marine fuels.

LR provides verification to Genoil’s HSFO conversion to 2020-compliant fuel

Lloyd’s Register witnessed a process demonstration, in which the exploration and drilling company Genoil used a hydroconversion upgrader to convert high sulphur heavy fuel oil into IMO 2020-compliant marine fuel. During the desulphurisation process, the sulphur content of an HSFO was reduced from 1.72% to 0.38%.

IG Clubs continues survey triggers for tankers carrying HFO

As part of the industry’s efforts to ensure higher ship standards, the International Group of P&I Clubs (IG Clubs) continues to implement survey triggers for seagoing vessels of 10 years of age or more carrying HFO, the American P&I Club reminded in a new circular.
