By 2030, international mandates require the reduction of global emissions of NOx from large marine diesel engines by 1.2 million tons and particulate matter emissions by 143,000 tons. Installing EcoEmissionsÕ technology on just a fraction of shipping traffic on the Pacific Ocean alone would single-handedly achieve that target.

Today, major industry faces a daunting challenge.

Confronted by increasing environmental restriction costs with increasing operating costs and a slumping economy, the transportation and shipping industries are now being forced to comply with costly legislation aimed at curtailing greenhouse emissions.

For many companies, the combined costs are insurmountable.

Whether it’s expensive engine modifications, hydrogen fuel cells, solar panels or hybrid motors, current technologies fail to provide a cost-effective solution to diesel emissions that’s commercially viable on a global scale.

For many industries, diesel engines remain the only viable power source for the foreseeable future.

The Messy Business Of Burning Diesel

Simply put, burning diesel is a messy business.

That’s because a significant portion of the diesel entering the combustion chamber never burns. The result is wasted fuel, carbon build-up, shortened engine life, and the familiar plumes of black smoky unburned hydrocarbons.

For nearly a century, engineers have experimented with additives to improve efficiency, and with post-combustion devices and catalytic filters to capture the resulting pollution.

A Problem Of Global Proportions

From transportation and manufacturing to mining and construction, there are currently millions of diesel engines in operation in North America alone.

With municipal, state and federal governments worldwide moving to curb emissions, the economic pressure to address pollution from diesel emissions has reached global proportions.
