Mexico's president took office in late 2018 pledging to boost local output of gasoline while phasing out imports, but so far state refineries have instead set a different course: bumper production of highly contaminating fuel oil.
According to the European Committee for Standardization (EN), both ultraviolet fluorescence (ISO 20846, sulfur by UVF) and wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence (ISO 20884, sulfur by WDXRF) are applicable test methods for fatty acid methyl ester (FAME), also known as biodiesel (EN 14214), and both are listed as referee methods. However, the situation is different at ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials).
China's exports of low-sulfur marine fuels rose 38% in March from the previous year, while monthly fuel oil imports soared to a decade-high.

Based on new environmental regulations focusing on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at the emissions point of a refinery’s sulfur recovery unit (SRU), Raffineria di Milazzo—a JV between Eni and Kuwait Petroleum Italia—carried out troubleshooting activities to identify and implement suitable actions to minimize the concentration of VOCs at the emissions point of the SRU complex.
The Czech Republic has invited transport ministers from 11 European Union counties to meet to discuss emissions-cutting policies amid a dispute over the bloc's landmark policy to shift to electric vehicles.

MECS, a subsidiary of Elessent Clean Technologies, was contracted for the provision of a 3,000-tpd MECS® sulfuric acid plant by Lithium Americas Corp.
Russian oil producer Lukoil has started ship-to-ship (STS) loadings of ultra-low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) off its western exclave of Kaliningrad.
The transportation of large quantities of liquid sulfur is costly and often impractical since it requires a continuous supply of heat energy to maintain its liquid form.
