Exhaust Emission Control - Image of a typical SCR system

Many engine manufacturers have already met the new
USA, Euro and Japanese environmental control leglislations - others are nearly
there - The following is a diagram of how Cummins has designed their system and
what is does. The basic principles are the same for other manufacturers, but their
working modules are probably different. Still others are solving the emission control
regulations in different ways.
Image SCR System
SCR - Selective Catalytic Reduction technology.

SCR is the name of a post-combustion technology treatment for diesel vehicles,
that allows them to reduce emissions of PM particulate matter
and NOx (nitrogen oxides).

DEF Diesel Exhaust Fluid
There are various manufacturers of SCR technologies who employ a DEF
as part of their system.

The Azimut 77 is powered by triple Volvo Penta 1200 IPS engines
each producing 900 hp, 662 kW.

This Italian sports beauty goes at 36 knots - that's 67 km/h - 
and my heart gets feelings of awe and admiration when I look at her!
Congratulations to Azimut!

Her interior is not too shabby either - expand the image below to 
check it out.

Biogas is gas produced from organic materials like plant waste, animal excrement etc.

I intend to build a biogas plant on my farm - can I use biogas to run my diesel engines?

image gasrec station

In its usual form you cannot use low pressure biogas to power diesel engines.

There are experiments going on to do this, but to date the results have not been good.

In America and Europe biogas is getting converted to RNG (Renewable Natural Gas) on a very large scale.
RNG and  LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) can both be used to run diesel engines. 
Some garages in Sweden and Germany only sell RNG while others only sell LNG.

In short, you cannot use biogas to run your diesel engines, but you can use RNG if you can produce it from your biogas.

If you run on gas here, probably it'll be LNG from Sasol,
but there's no reason it can't also be RNG from your farms.

Biogas Engines
Specialised biogas engines are however manufactured and work with spark ignition systems.
For example Scania has a 9 liter biogas engine.

Her Majesty Koningin Maxima - launches the NH1816 Rescue Boat

MTU marine engine - Runs upside down!
If the boat capsizes it must right itself - like a kid's
rubber duck, and it does!
Of course this means the engine must carry on working      
when totally inverted without loosing a pulse!
