Certification For Marine Fuels

Lloyd’s Register Certifies that various marine fuels containing the recommended doses of SulNOxEcoTM Fuel Conditioner continue to meet ISO 8217 standards

We are pleased to confirm that Lloyd’s Register Fuel Oil Bunker Analysis and Advisory Service (“FOBAS”) has carried out an impact assessment of distillate and residual fuels before and after treatment with ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner and certified that the impact of the ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner on ISO 8217 test parameters is minimal and does not change the fuel characteristics when added to the marine fuel at the prescribed dosage rate.

Six separate fuel samples were tested. Three light, distillate marine (DM) fuels and three heavier, more viscous residual marine (RM) fuels, akin to Very Low or Ultra Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (“VLSFO/ULSFO”), previously not independently certified with ElimiNOX Eco™ Fuel Conditioner.

Lloyd’s Register is a highly respected and trusted international classification society and these results provide another significant landmark.

Fossil-based distillate and residual fuels currently make up more than 98% of shipping fuel requirements. Very little is expected to change with 97% fossil-based usage anticipated by 2030 and two-thirds by 2050. Having this certification immediately opens up long-term sales opportunities practically across the entire shipping sector and adds significant credibility to the ability of ElimiNOX products to play a vital role in decarbonisation.

Due to the massive fuel consumption and need to reduce emissions at pace, shipping represents a significant market. The Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) regulation is coming into force in January 2023, with the industry expecting as much as 70% of the global shipping fleet not being compliant and now urgently seeking solutions to reduce emissions and fuel consumption.

Many ship owners are talking of having to reduce vessel speeds to become compliant, which obviously comes at great commercial cost. However, with the proven improvements in fuel efficiency, power and torque from using ElimiNOX Eco™ in fuels, we offer immediate, green solutions. The Lloyd’s Register results, once again, confirm that there are no technical barriers to widespread ElimiNOX Eco™ adoption in shipping.”
