New Technologies for Emission Control in Marine Diesel Engines provides a unique overview on marine diesel engines and aftertreatment technologies that is based on the authors’ extensive experience in research and development of emission control systems, especially plasma aftertreatment systems. The book covers new and updated technologies, such as combustion improvement and after treatment, SCR, the NOx reduction method, Ox scrubber, DPF, Electrostatic precipitator, Plasma PM decomposition, Plasma NOx reduction, and the Exhaust gas recirculation method. This comprehensive resource is ideal for marine engineers, engine manufacturers and consultants dealing with the development and implementation of aftertreatment systems in marine engines.

Key Features

  • Includes recent advances and future trends of marine engines
  • Discusses 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
