Tóm tắt

At present time, the climate change has been effecting over world. The International Maritime Organization through the Annex VI of the MARPOL 73/78 Convention strongly requests the all Governmental Parties to take a part in the reduce the emissions from their fleet to the atmosphere. Therefore, Vietnam Maritime Universty is to carry out a research on using the crude palm oil for the marine diesel engines equipped on board of inland waterway ships. The crude palm oil means the pure palm oil which is not transesterified (It is not 3 fatty acid methyl esters). The research has to answer the following questions: Whether we can use the crude palm oil for marine diesel engines? Which percent of the crude palm oil should be mixed with the DO that the mixed fuel do not harm to the technical and economical features of the marine diesel engines; How much we can reduce the exhaust gas emissions from the ships when we use the mixture fuel for the marine diesel engines in Vietnam.The research started since 2010 at Vietnam Maritime University facilities and a sizable number of experiment has been done. As the output of research, positive result at the considerable reduction of engines exhaust gas emissions has been obtained. The paper is discussing on the methodology and possibility of using crude palm oil for diesel engine of in-land water fleet in Vietnam and the obtained result as well.

Keywords: Climate change; emissions; MARPOL 73/78 convention; biodiesel; Vietnam Maritime University; crude palm oil; in-land water fleet.
