Marine Fuel Testing and Treatment

The Star marine fuel testing and treatment range provides a turnkey stewardship solution for users of marine diesel fuels and low sulphur alternatives. The range has been developed specifically for shipping operators requiring an effective means to measure and manage fuel quality.


Fuel Stewardship and IMO 2020

The Star Mariner fuel stewardship range has been developed in response to the International Maritime Association's (IMO's) 2020 regulations. It supports operators in meeting regulatory requirements and in safeguarding assets from the risks associated with using low sulphur, Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) based alternative fuels.
