The global marine industry continues to largely contribute to air pollution in many cities and harbor areas. Global regulatory agencies, including Det Norske Veritas (DNV), US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), EURO Waterways and International Maritime Organization (IMO) have enacted programs to reduce emissions from all diesel vessels.
For Caterpillar marine customers, emissions and alternative fuels are a key focus, to ensure that diesel engines meet global requirements. Caterpillar Marine Power Systems has long been a leader in environmental issues, allowing customers to focus on business progress.
