IMO FAQS: Sulphur limits in emission control areas from 1 January 2015
Members will already be aware, from the Club’s recent publications, of the new requirements relating to sulphur emissions that are due to enter into force in emission control areas on 1st January 2015, namely that ships trading in such designated areas will have to use fuel on board with a sulphur content of no more than 0.10% from this date.
The IMO has published a set of FAQs on this matter which are available as a pdf.
