Soon it will be carried out an implementation of the new Europe guidelines about the “ Sulphur Emission Control Area (SECA)”. This will envisage two phases:

  1. From 2015 the ships that will be sailing in the Baltic Sea and in the North Sea will be obliged to have a percentage of sulfur in the bunker that won’t exceed 0,5% per milliliter;
  2. From 2020 the percentage of sulfur is due to decrease to 0,1% per milliliter

Taking into consideration that the ships sailing in the Baltic see and in the North Sea have an average sulfur percentage of 2,7% per milliliter, this drastic reduction is going to represent a big issue for shipowners both from the technological point of view and the bureaucratic and economic point of view.
