Free training video: The 2020 Sulphur Regulations
Videotel are offering free access to their new training video: The 2020 Sulphur Regulations – Achieving Compliance. The video outlines the new regulations, where and how they apply, how they are enforced, and what crews and owners need to do to be compliant.
As part of the global fight against pollution and environmental change, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) is working to reduce the impact of the shipping industry on the quality of the air that we breathe. From the 1st January 2020, the IMO has introduced a new global sulphur limit of 0.50% in fuel unless an exhaust gas cleaning system is fitted. All vessels entering Emission Control Areas (ECAs) will still be required to switch to fuels with a sulphur content of no more than 0.10%.
The 2020 Sulphur Regulations – Achieving Compliance is an awareness video that lays out clearly the new regulations, where and how they apply, how they are enforced, and what crews and owners need to do to be compliant. It explains that there are three methods to meet the new requirement:
- Burn compliant fuels;
- Use alternative fuels;
- Install an exhaust gas cleaning system;
The pros and cons of each are discussed, and the video explains what ships have to do in case things go wrong.
