The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) have implemented a new global sulphur cap, reducing the amount of sulphur permitted in fuel from 3.50% to 0.50%. This will be effective from 1st January 2020 and will be one of the most dramatic fuel regulation changes ever implemented. Our infographic below summarises how the IMO reached such a landmark decision and highlights the impact that the sulphur cap may have on fuel choices.

We can help navigate this challenging landscape. Our new range of asphaltene dispersants provide optimum fuel stability when blending, and function in a range of oils - important due to variation in the global shipping fleet. We also offer lubricity additives for marine fuel to help our customers overcome the friction and wear issues they face when marine fuel is desulphurised
