Over the last decade, a number of emission control areas (ECAs) have been established by the International Maritime Organization (IMOJ in which echaust emissions are subject to even more stringent controls. In addition, there are now rules that affect new ships and their emission of CO2 measured as a product of cargo carried. All of this as well as commercial economic reasons has led to new thinking and new operating procedures. In addition, dual-fuel engines have become mainstream and now that there is an international set of regulations for using natural gas as a fuel, their use is expected to accelerate.
Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines has served seagoing engineers, students of the Certificates of Competency examinations, and the marine engineering
thout the world. Now in its 10th edition, this book is considered a classic for engineering cadets and students of marine engineering, while at the same time giving ship operators/managers an insight into currently available engines and auxiliary equipment and trends for the future.
