Bye-bye bunker fuel?

Posted Feb. 2, 2012 / Posted by: John Kaltenstein

The Antarctic already has a ban in place on the use of bunker fuel by ships, the US and Canada are getting an Emission Control Area in August which could likely phase out bunker use in North American waters, and the EU is being pressured to eliminate bunker use by passenger ships in response to the Costa Concordia disaster.  Isn’t it time to end the use of bunker in the Arctic, too?
