Fight against sea freight pollution: IMO 2020

As of January 1, 2020, the Low Sulfur standard of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) comes into effect. This global regulation aims to reduce sulfur emissions from ships by 85%. In order to comply with this standard, shipping companies will either have to use a more refined fuel or equip their ships with a waste treatment system. The implementation of this standard will lead to an increase of sea freight costs estimated at from 150 to 320 USD per 20-foot container.

HYDRIMPEX is adapting its transport practices by offering pre-delivery by train. We make every effort to reduce delivery terms and limit harmful emissions.

 

4MS: RESTRICTIONS SANITAIRES DANS l’UE

Four EU countries (France, Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain) set up a working group called « 4MS ». In this context, they evaluated the materials used in contact with drinking water. They have, according to harmonized criteria, established a list of positive materials, approved for use for drinking water supply systems.

As of July 1, 2020, if a valve is made of a metal excluded from the positive list of 4MS, the Health Compliance Certificate will no longer be issued.

Brass valves for water service connection are among the products affected by this new regulation. HYDRIMPEX is already up to date with these new requirements.
