ABSTRACT
The article focuses on carbon emission issues wherein marine diesel engines actual emissions are more than twice as high as those from jet engines. According to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), annual emissions from shipping have now topped a billion tonnes of carbon dioxide. It states that Process Systems Enterprise (PSE) Ltd. and Det Norske Veritas (DNV) have joined forces to develop systems for on-ship carbon capture and storage (CCS).
