Avocet is currently developing our marine engine fuel additive.
Like our diesel and petrol engine additive, when it’s mixed with methanol it will replace the heavy fuel oil used in the marine industry reducing emissions.
The 15 largest ships in the world emit as much nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulphur oxide (SOx) as the world’s 760 million cars.
Air pollution from ships continues to increase as the sector grows. NOx from shipping is set to exceed NOx from all EU land-based sources in the coming decade.
Air pollution from international shipping accounts for approximately 50,000 premature deaths per year in Europe, at an annual cost to society of more than €58 billion, according to recent scientific studies.
