New Super Eco Fuel being developed

500 bunker

Oshima Shipbuilding is developing a new fuel which aims to meet all air emission regulations while simplifying the fuel system and reducing investment costs. The fuel would be compliant with SOx and NOx regulations without requiring spacious and costly equipment to be installed on board and can be blended to meet the 2020 0.5% global sulphur cap. The new fuel type Super Eco Fuel is produced by mixing lightcycle oil (LCO), a secondary refinery product, with gas-to-liquid (GTL), a liquid fuel made from natural gas, and water.  DNV GL has estimated the costs of the new fuel to be higher than standard HFO but lower than other LFSO options.
