Abstract

Several different solutions have been considered worldwide for reducing exhaust emissions, such as applying alternative fuels and developing high efficiency engines. IMO societies have laid down guidelines for future limits on emission contents, taking into consideration different applications and exploitation of marine engines. Engine manufacturers have been forced to develop new technologies to fulfil the existing and future IMO emission regulations. The paper analyses some of the new methods and technologies of highly efficient engines meeting new regulations. Keywords: marine engine, IMO regulations, exhaust emission.
