Article title

The future of the fuel in the marine industry

Title variants
Languages of publication
The marine propulsion plants of modern commercial marine vessels are based on huge two-stroke low-speed engines, which consume very low-quality residual fuel. As a result of heavy fuel combustion, emissions of harmful (toxic) pollutants into the atmosphere, particularly sulfur oxides, occur. Consequently, such acts are subject to the laws and regulations norms governing their use in national waters, the European Union and the whole world. On the other hand, ship owners who do not comply with prescribed standards are subject to high fines and therefore the maritime economy is looking for new, cleaner sources of energy in shipbuilding. Authors based on the analysis of literature and legislation present possible solutions to the problem mentioned.
