Fuel treatment in maritime shipping 

International shipping burns more than 175 million tons of residual fuel (HFO) annually. However, the quality of marine fuel (refinery residues) has deteriorated sharply in recent years.

This is mainly due to the introduction of secondary refining methods and in particular to the increasingly intensified viscosity breaking processes to meet the increasing demand for automotive and aviation fuels.

The importance of high fuel quality

The quality of fuel influences the processes before, during and after combustion. An unstable quality of heavy oil or lower quality gas oil can lead to contamination in the tanks, premature wear of parts, higher fuel consumption and more polluting exhaust gases. Aquality has knowledge and solutions that ensure reliable fuel quality on board ships and in industry.
