To assist in the compliance with international and national air emissions standards, alternative fuels, such as LNG and biofuels, have been developed. Since these types of fuels are relatively new on the market, it is important that proper standards and operational procedures are developed and maintained to ensure safe tanker operations for those Members that wish to utilise these fuels. INTERTANKO will continue to play an active role at IMO and with other organisations to ensure that appropriate standards and operational procedures are developed for use on tankers to meet Members’ needs.
In addition to LNG and biofuels, other types of fuels such as LPG, Methyl/ethyl and fuel cells are being developed to assist in the compliance with international and national air emissions standards. As these alternative fuels become available it is essential to ensure that standards and operational procedures for these fuels are safe for tanker operations for those Members that wish to utilise them. INTERTANKO will monitor the development of such fuels and advise Members accordingly to meet their needs.
