Stricter rules on sulfur emissions from ships will be effective next year for the oil and shipping industries. From January 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will ban ships from using fuels with a sulfur content above 0.5%, compared with 3.5% now. Biofuels produced from Used Cooking Oils are being tested by ocean-going ships in pilot trials worldwide.
Based on an article by Hellenics Shipping News in March 2019, CMA CGM has teamed up with the Port of Rotterdam, IKEA Transport & Logistics Services and biofuel company GoodShipping to test biofuels made from UCO and forest product residues. The fuel can be used in a marine engine without modifications and able to reduce CO2 emissions up to 90 percent. This fuel “virtually eliminates” sulfur oxide emissions which enables shipping operators to meet IMO’s deadline.
