PPR 7/8: Initial results of a Black Carbon measurement campaign with emphasis on the impact of the fuel oil quality on Black Carbon emissions
This document presents results of a measurement campaign for the analysis of the impact of fuel oil quality on Black Carbon emissions. The results clearly indicate that new blends of marine fuels with 0.50% sulphur content can contain a large percentage of aromatic compounds, which have a direct impact on Black Carbon emissions.
As climate change impacts the Arctic, momentum is building to rid the region of the world’s dirtiest fuel: heavy fuel oil. Several countries are calling for a ban from Arctic shipping – but more support is needed.
