Bunge Loders Croklaan changes palm oil products portfolio to low 3-MCPDE September 18, 2018 In anticipation of future EU legislation, vegetable oils and fats producer Bunge Loders Croklaan (BLC) has converted its entire palm oil food portfolio to have low 3-MCPDE levels. In a scientific opinion earlier in the year, the European Food Safety Authority expressed its concerns over the presence of 3-monochloropropane diol esters (3-MCPDEs) and glycidyl esters (GEs) in refined vegetable oils and fats, BLC said on 28 August. In March 2018, the EU set a regulation limiting GE content in foods to less than 1ppm and similar legislation on 3-MCPDE content was expected in the near future, although no exact date could be foreseen. Ahead of the upcoming regulation, BLC vice president for Europe Holger Riemensperger said the company had begun supplying fully mitigated palm oil and palm derivatives on a large scale. “We can deliver out...

Forecasters unanimous – U.S.-China trade war bad for economy, Reuters poll finds in World Economy News 21/09/2018 The U.S. economy will expand at a robust pace in coming quarters but slow to 2 percent by the end of 2019, according to forecasters polled by Reuters who unanimously said the escalating trade war with China was bad economic policy. In a sign the trade war is not likely to end any time soon, President Donald Trump on Monday imposed a 10 percent tariff on about $200 billion (£152 billion) worth of Chinese imports and threatened duties on around $267 billion more if Beijing retaliates, which it has. In the meantime, the U.S. economy was forecast to grow at an annualised pace of 3.1 percent this quarter, up slightly from 3.0 percent forecast last month, followed by 2.8 percent in the fourth quarter, according to the latest poll. All 70 economists...

BIMCO aims for standard form for non-compliant marine fuel use in International Shipping News 21/09/2018 Shipping association BIMCO and other organizations are working closely with the International Maritime Organization to ensure a standard procedure for ships to use high sulfur fuel if compliant alternatives are not available at a port once the IMO sulfur cap comes into effect on January 1, 2020, a senior executive said this week. “The shipping industry has proposed a standard form to submit all details to enable the use of other fuels if they can’t find compliant fuels,” BIMCO’s President Designate Sadan Kaptanoglu said on the sidelines of the Marine Money conference in Singapore. IMO’s mandatory sulfur cap for marine fuels from 2020 is 0.5% compared with 3.5% currently. At its meeting next month, IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee will review global preparedness to implement the new rules. Any introduction of a standard procedure...

Newbuilding Orders Pick Up as Shipowners Boost Global Orderbook in Hellenic Shipping News 19/09/2018 Ship owners are seemingly in the hunt for more newbuildings, after a mid-summer lull of activity brought ordering activity to a year-to-date low. In its latest weekly report, shipbroker Allied Shipbroking noted that “despite the recent signs of clampdown during the summer period, the past couple of weeks has shown a more aggressive attitude once again emerging in the market. With the bulker sector taking the lead and tankers following closely, the overall market has been set on a bullish mode in terms of activity noted. The rather “surprising” fact is that we are seeing a fair volume of new contracting coming from the wet side, given that the prolonged slump in the freight market has weakened appetite for investing towards this direction. While, at the same time, the secondhand market is seemingly over spilling...

Credit: UK MCA UK MCA: How to limit risk of CO2 release incidents The UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency informed of two serious and potentially near fatal accidental CO2 releases on UK ships in the last two years. In both cases the CO2 leaked from the manifold into the CO2 room. Loss Prevention | 18/09/18 Namely, the remote release valves were untouched and the CO2 alarms operated, alerting the crew and averting fatalities. However, these incidents follow a concerning pattern of similar incidents. GET THE SAFETY4SEA IN YOUR INBOX!

CO2 is also both colourless and odourless.

IMO Sub-Committee takes steps for use of methanol as ship fuel The 5th session of the IMO’s sub-Committee on Carriage of Cargoes and Containers (CCC 5) last week has completed draft interim guidelines for the safety of ships using methanol as fuel, setting them on course for formal approval by the IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) in 2020. Fuels | 18/09/18 The goal of these guidelines is to provide for safe and environmentally-friendly design, construction and operation of ships and in particular their installations of systems for propulsion machinery, auxiliary power generation machinery and/or other purpose machinery using methyl/ethyl alcohol as fuel. Methanol is a clean-burning fuel that emits low levels of NOx and particulate matter and it is virtually sulphur-free. The use of methanol is considered one of the choices for environmental compliance thanks to its huge potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A study conducted by SUMMETH project earlier...
