Due to the recent amendments to the rules of IMO Convention and the global “Sulfur Limitation Order” issued by IMO, which came into effect on January 1, 2020, has brought a greater impact on the shipping industry chain and economic chain. The traditional types of ships in terms of fuel and tail gas treatment and the large-tonnage ships on the EEDI energy efficiency index are gradually unable to meet the requirements of the new amendment convention to be implemented, so the shipowners are required to make technical breakthroughs. Starting from some conventions amended by IMO, the article analyzes the current method to deal with the “Sulfur Limitation Order”, and introduces the convention taking force, as well as analyzes some of the technologies required and challenges faced of the ships in the future.
