Carriage ban looming for ship owners and operators – IMO2020

The much reported MARPOL Annex VI regulation (a.k.a IMO2020) which was implemented to lower the current global limit for sulphur content of marine fuels from 3.50% to 0.50% came into effect on 1st January 2020.. This reduction in sulphur content is supposed to be achieved by way of
