In the marine market, the Annex VI of MARPOL 73/78 and the Technical Code on the Control of Emissions of Nitrogen Oxides from Marine Diesel Engines came into force on 18th may 2005.
Both at international and regional levels, more stringent legislation stipulates and regulates levels of smoke, particulates, NOx, SOx and other pollutants generated from marine diesel engines.
New emission reduction technologies, offered as standard on new engines, can often be retrofitted on marine or power plant installations already in operation. These installations can then benefit from technical improvements not originally available when they first entered into service.
EPA legislation is example of how limits on particulate matter and NOx have changed over the years: from 1988 to 2010 requirements for emission reduction are rising more than 95%.
So in conclusion, the need for a clean environment and reducing health hazards to human beings forced the MARPOL and the marine industry to innovate new technologies for reducing harmful emissions from marine diesel engines.
