New Low Sulphur Fuels, Fate, and Behavior in Cold Water Conditions

Knowledge on New Low-Sulphur Fuels in the Arctic

Objective

To expand our knowledge of the toxicity, fate, and behavior of new low sulphur fuel oils in cold water conditions. The results will support integration into marine oil spill prevention, preparedness, and response activities.

Activities

  1. Develop and distribute a questionnaire on fuel used by ships in the Arctic
  2. Convene an expert workshop with industry representatives to advance the project
  3. Collect samples of fuels
  4. Analyze the fate and behaviour of the fuel samples
  5. Analyze the toxicity of these fuels
