Following these concerns, regulatory efforts (international, federal, and local) have focused on use of low sulfur fuels in localized areas and standards for pollutants from engine exhaust gas streams. Technology-based solutions are maturing quickly, with many lessons learned available from new installations and retrofits on a wide range of vessel types and trades.
