Marine industry: regulations and standards

The global maritime industry remains a major contributor to air pollution in many port cities and regions.

International regulatory organisations, Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Waterways Forward et International Maritime Organization (IMO) have adopted programmes aiming to reduce emissions from all diesel-propelled ships.

For Caterpillar’s marine industry clients, emissions standards are critical for ensuring diesel engines comply with international regulations.
