Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
In addition to improving the efficiency of its solutions, Wärtsilä is continuously developing technologies for reducing the CO2 and THC (total hydrocarbons) emissions for both diesel and gas engines. For gas engines Wärtsilä is evaluating a set of methods that reduce the THC levels 30-90%. Complementing the pure engine development work, efforts are underway to design, test and validate a combined catalyst-based methane reduction system for the engine.
