Why Will IMO 2020 Save Fewer Lives Than Expected?

One of the aims of the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) 2020 regulation was to reduce morbidity and premature deaths due to sulphur oxides (SOx). The Finnish Meteorological Institute commissioned the study: “Health Impacts Associated with Delay of MARPOL Global Sulphur Standards.”

The authors created two scenarios: “an ‘ontime’ implementation case, which assumed that the fuel oil standard goes into effect in 2020; and a ‘delay’ implementation case, which assumed that the standard is delayed until [January 1] 2025.
