China Ministry of Transport (MOT) issued a document of the domestic emission control area regulation from 1 January 2019 in the waters as shown below.
The general content of SOx is as follows:
a) From 1January 2019: all ships that enter China’s territorial waters must use low sulphur fuel (sulphur content of the fuel ≤0.5% m/m).
b) From 1January 2020: all ships entering China inland emission control areas (Yangtze River and Xijiang River) must use ultra-low sulphur fuel (sulphur content of the fuel ≤0.1% m/m).
c) From 1March 2020: all ships without an Exhaust Gas Cleaning System (EGCS or scrubber) entering China's territorial waters are only permitted to carry and use the compliant fuel oilspecified by the new regulation (sulphur content of the fuel ≤0.5% m/m).
d) From 1January 2022: all ships entering the Hainan emission control area must use ultra-low sulphur fuel (sulphur content of the fuel ≤0.1% m/m).
It is expected 30%~40% at least of the ships globally will be installed with Exhaust Gas Cleaning System in the coming years according to the implementation of regulations of IMO and environment protection policies of China. The implementation of regulation of SOx limit 0.5% m/m on and after 2020 will bring new opportunities for International and domestic markets.
