PPR 7/INF.24: Impacts of a heavy fuel oil ban on shipping costs for Canadian Arctic mining operations

Impacts of a heavy fuel oil ban on shipping costs for Canadian Arctic mining operations

This document summarizes the findings of an analysis by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) titled Arctic heavy fuel oil ban: Fuel and voyage cost effects on bulk carriers used in Canadian Arctic mining operations. A key finding being that if ships do not use exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), the fuel and voyage cost impacts of an Arctic HFO ban are expected to be negligible.
