The need for urgent action to stop the use of blended low sulphur residual fuels leading to increases in ship-source Black Carbon globally

Submitted by FOEI, WWF, Pacific Environment and CSC

This document responds to a recent study showing that new blended low sulphur residual fuels designed to meet the IMO 2020 mandated 0.50% global sulphur limit will result in very significant increases in ships’ Black Carbon emissions, reflects on the implications of this for shipping’s contribution to the climate crisis and calls on IMO to regulate to stop their use.
