How is FuelSpec® Combustion Catalyst Impacting the Shipping Industry?

Industry Challenges:
  1. Easy Target for Regulators - Despite being the most eco-friendly mode of transport, the shipping industry impacts global warming due to its sheer scale and its dependence on heavy fuel oil (“HFO”).
  2. Bottom Line – A struggling world economy, coupled with the industry’s overcapacity issues, help squeeze shipping margins to ports around the world.
  3. Environmental Regulations – Compliance while operating in Emission Control Areas forces ships to manage multiple grades of fuel, which can hinder engine performance and delivery schedules.
