THE MARINE DIESEL ENGINE--THE ANSWER TO LOW GRADE FUELS

The goal of this paper is to review the present range of Sulzer diesel engines in view of low quality fuels. A brief description of fuel/combustion related design features is given. Particular attention is paid to low quality fuels expected to penetrate the market in nonnegligible quantities in the not-too-distant future, and a possible contender in the field of synthetic fuels is presented.
