Special Issue "Marine Engines Performance and Emissions"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 May 2020.
This Special Issue focuses on all aspects related to marine engine performance and emissions. Works related to emissions and emission reduction technology are welcome, such as alternative fuels, engine modifications, or after-treatment technology. Innovative aspects related to performance will also be considered. Contributors are advised to submit papers that fit in one or more of the subjects indicated below. However, papers that are not directly related to these areas shall also be considered in cases of particular interest to this Special Issue.
- Emissions from marine engines, reduction, and control
- Conventional and alternative fuels
- Mathematical models
- Marine engine technology
- Lubrication and lubes
- Auxiliary systems

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Title: Numerical analysis of NOx reduction using ammonia injection and comparison with water injection
María Isabel Lamas Galdo
Abstract: This work analyzes NOx reduction in a marine diesel engine using ammonia injection directly into the cylinder and compares this procedure with water injection. It was verified that ammonia injection provided more than 80% NOx reduction with a negligible effect on carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbon emissions, as well as brake-specific fuel consumption. Chemical and physical effects of water and ammonia were studied. The chemical effect was stronger than the physical one in the case of ammonia injection and the opposite in the case of water injection. Furthermore, it was found that the strength of the chemical effect using ammonia injection is extremely dependent on the injection instant. Ammonia must be injected during the expansion stroke.
