New Technologies for Emission Control in Marine Diesel Engines provides a unique overview on marine diesel engines and aftertreatment technologies that is based on the authors' extensive experience in research and development of emission control systems, especially plasma aftertreatment systems. The book covers new and updated technologies, such as combustion improvement and after treatment, SCR, the NOx reduction method, Ox scrubber, DPF, Electrostatic precipitator, Plasma PM decomposition, Plasma NOx reduction, and the Exhaust gas recirculation method. This comprehensive resource is ideal for marine engineers, engine manufacturers and consultants dealing with the development and implementation of aftertreatment systems in marine engines.
- Includes recent advances and future trends of marine engines
- Discusses new and innovative emission technologies for marine diesel engines and their regulations
- Covers aftertreatment technologies that are not widely applied, such as catalysts, SCR, DPF and plasmas

Dr. Okubo received the B. Eng., M. Eng., and Ph. D. degrees from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, in 1985, 1987, and 1990, respectively. His current research interests are nonthermal plasma applications for air pollution control, material surface modification, and numerical simulations of plasmas, aerosols and multiphase fluid flows in environmental engineering. Dr. Okubo is the author of more than 130 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals and seven books. Now, he is a chairman of Electrostatics Process committee of the IEEE Industry Applications Society, and the fellow of Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.
