Get ready for the ‘2020 sulphur cap’!


The implementation of the ‘Global 0,50 % m/m Sulphur cap’, as described in article 14 of the Marpol Annex VI, is very close. From 1 st January 2020, the restriction of the maximum Sulphur content in ships’ fuels will come into force worldwide. The enforcement of this requirement represents a considerable tightening of the maximum of 3,5% m/m since 2012. Moreover, it will be in addition to other strict air emission requirements that are already applicable.
