15:00 – 16:00 PANEL SESSION: What would be the consequences of the imposition of the Global Sulphur Cap?

The global 0.50% sulphur cap will enter into force in 2020. More than 70,000 ships worldwide will be affected. Ship owners will need to ensure that their vessels will be in compliance on all the usual trade routes. They have four options: switching from high-sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) to marine gas oil (MGO) or distillates; using very-low-sulphur fuel oil or compliant fuel blends (0.50% sulphur); retrofitting vessels to use alternative fuels such as LNG or other sulphur-free fuels; or installing exhaust gas cleaning systems which allow operation on HSFO. This panel will examine the effect of the imposition of the cap. Five minutes introduction from each panellist will be followed by questions and answers.
