The Science of Compliance
Using Portable Field Instruments to Confirm Marine Fuel Compliance
The upcoming change to the permissible sulphur content of marine fuels burnt in the open ocean has brought the subject of compliance to the fore. The most cost-effective way to meet the 0.5% sulphur limit is to blend the minimum amount of expensive, low sulphur fuel with the maximum amount of cheap, high sulphur fuel. This leads to fuels that surf the compliance line very closely. Of course the issue of fuel compliance is not just restricted to sulphur.
This white paper discusses recent technological advances and the benefits of using portable field spectrometers to measure sulphur and biodiesel concentrations within different fuels to help meet compliance standards.
