This is both good and bad news. The good news is that this is levitra cost a big step in reducing NOx emissions. The bad news is that companies will hit a huge budget problem because of the cost that goes into updating the ships to meet the required standards.

I don't really think these large companies will lose money by using of a tad more expensive but more eco-friendly fuel. The costs of pollution will far outweigh any economic disadvantage that the use of more expensive fuel will bring about.
