New Technologies for Emission Control in Marine Diesel Engines provides a unique overview on marine diesel engines and aftertreatment technologies, based on the authors’ extensive experience in research and development of emission control systems, especially plasma aftertreatment systems. This book will cover new and updated technologies such as combustion improvement and aftertreatment; SCR; NOx reduction method; SOx scrubber; DPF; Electrostatic precipitator; Plasma PM decomposition; Plasma NOx reduction; and Exhaust gas recirculation method.
This publication is for marine engineers as well as engine manufacturers and consultants dealing with the development and implementation of aftertreatment systems in marine engines.
- Includes recent advances and future trends of marine engines
- Discusses the new and innovative emission technologies for marine diesel engines and their regulations
- Covers aftertreatment technologies that are not widely applied such as catalysts, SCR, DPF and plasmas
Marine, Automotive, and Environmental Engineers and Researchers; Post-doc students and those involved in the area of marine engines after-treatment systems
2. Marine diesel engines and emission regulations
3. Principle of emission control technologies (marine and automobile)
4. Design consideration of marine emission control system
5. Laboratory and pilot scale and full-scale operation examples
