NOx Emissions Reduction Through Water Injection
Transport Canada is committed to protect the environment and to achieve a more sustainable transportation system. The Transportation Development Centre of Transport Canada, in collaboration with the Environment Research and Measurement Division of Environment Canada, is conducting research on marine emissions control technologies to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. » The ongoing work on emissions control technologies comprises both laboratory and field trials. An initial round of laboratory tests demonstrated the viability of a Water Injection System (WIS) to reduce NOx emissions. The results indicate that the WIS has achieved a 20 to 28% NOx reduction over a 25 to 75% load range with a maximum of 33% water injection. The WIS was optimized during laboratory bench tests and will be installed on a RORO vessel operating between Montreal, Quebec, and St. John's, Newfoundland. The WIS provides a cost‐effective solution for NOx reduction on Canadian vessels fitted with older medium‐speed engines.
