Blending fuel oils with different sulfur levels to create very low sulfur fuel oils (VLSFO) is often susceptible to solid formation due to incompatibility of the paraffinic and aromatic components. This challenge can be resolved with effective stabilizing additives. When VLSFOs are treated with Nalco Water stability additives, the asphaltenes are dispersed and unable to coalesce. This allows the VLSFO to remain stable and compatible over time, while being compliant with the 0.5% sulfur specification of IMO 2020.
