THE IMPACT OF ENGINE EMISSIONS LEGISLATION OF PRESENT AND FUTURE ROYAL NAVY SHIPS

This paper identifies the impending engine emissions legislation, the technology available to comply with this legislation and the impact on current and future naval ships. The UK Naval Support Command is developing technical solutions to the proposed regulations and has been investigating technologies ranging from simple engine adjustments to exhaust gas treatment systems. Sulphurous emissions are not considered a problem for UK Royal Navy ships because of the low sulphur content of its fuel. Nitrogen based emissions are significantly more difficult to reduce. The solution will depend upon factors such as the ship's mission, its prime mover fit, and UK Ministry of Defence policy.
