Bunker fuel, the fractionally distilled fuel derived from crude oil, is used chiefly by ships. Bunker fuel is known to be more polluting owing to its highly unrefined nature as compared to other petroleum products. Owing to this, the bunker fuel market has remained at the center of numerous controversies related to marine environment pollution in the past years. This has led to the enforcement of several emissions control areas (ECAs) where marine vessels are prohibited from burning fuel with sulfur content of more than 0.1%. This has led to an increasing shift towards low-sulfur bunker fuel. The volatile prices of crude oil on the global front, which are currently at a record low, are also significantly impacting the market.
