This article, in the "Newbuilding" supplement section of this issue of Fairplay, begins by noting that if the theme of the 1980s, in the field of marine diesel engines, was fuel economy and reliable low- grade-fuel operation, the challenge of the 1990s will be that of controlling exhaust emissions from ships in ports and coastal waters. In particular, regulations concerning nitrogen oxide emissions are expected to proliferate. Compliance will dictate engines with modified combustion properties--possibly at a cost in fuel economy--or the installation of selective catalytic reduction systems to treat the exhaust gas. Emissions control developments at several of the leading engine manufacturers are summarized.
