Navigating marine regulatory changes 

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) implemented a new global sulphur cap, reducing the amount of sulphur permitted in fuel from 3.50% to 0.50%. This became effective from 1st January 2020 and was considered one of the most dramatic fuel regulation changes ever implemented, having a huge impact on fuel choices faced by shippers.  

As technical experts we are here to help understand this challenging landscape and can provide solutions to address your issues with marine fuel stability or incompatibility as a result of the new global sulphur cap.  

Our range of FlowSolve™ M asphaltene dispersants provide optimum fuel stability when blending, and function in a range of oils - important due to variation in the global shipping fleet. Our lubricity additives can also help our customers overcome the friction and wear issues they face when marine fuel is desulphurised
