Compliance with the ASTM method at low concentrations sulfur. Sulfur is a major element of importance because it forms sulfuric acid in the atmosphere when burned and has harmful impact on the human health and on the environment. In the mid-2000`s, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began a program to greatly reduce the amount of Sulfur in petroleum products. The current allowable sulfur limit in vehicle fuel is 15 ppm (parts per million). To reduce the pollution coming from vessels the international maritime Organization (IMO) established new limits on emission of sulfur oxides. In Emission Controlled Areas the sulfur limit will be 0.1 % starting 2015. The continued strategy by EPA and IMO to reduce the amount of sulfur in petroleum products put a great demand on sulfur monitoring in fuel and oil products.
