Ships must use fuel five times cleaner in the Mediterranean

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) plans to approve next June a proposal to designate the Mediterranean as a control area for sulfur oxide (SOx) emissions. In this way, the ships that navigate this sea should reduce five times the sulfur pollution from the burning of their fuel. The proposal has the endorsement of all the coastal countries that are members of the Barcelona Convention (agreement aimed at preventing pollution from ships and protecting the marine environment).

The creation of marine protected atmosphere areas already has precedents in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea or in North America. The IMO anticipates that this measure would enter into force in 2025.
