Heard that too. I'm guessing since GDI does produce more particulate matter and Euro VI/VII might have tighter limits on PM2.5 emissions.

Yet we allow the ships running across the ocean from heavily polluting factories in China/India a free pass. mad

Actually...

Coming Changes in Marine Fuel...

An excerpt:

The International Maritime Organization (IMO), the 171-member state United Nations agency that sets standards for shipping, is set to reduce the maximum amount of sulfur content (by percent weight) in marine fuels used on the open seas from 3.5% to 0.5% by 2020. These regulations are intended to reduce sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and other pollutants from global ship exhaust.

The 2020 reduction in sulfur limits follows a series of similar reductions in marine fuel sulfur limits, such as those that reduced sulfur content of marine fuels in IMO-designated Emission Control Areas from 1.0% to 0.1% in 2015. Other areas around ports in Europe and parts of China have adopted similar sulfur restrictions.

When I took a cruise, you could see the trail of orange behind the ship when at sea. Going up the Mississippi to NO, there was no smoke, because they had switched to clean fuel.

Still though it's the amount of ships running across the ocean to begin with and the factories belching out their junk. It's great they are making changes but it's like a drop in the ocean in comparison while we get bent over continually. Cars are virtually clean once the catalysts are up to temperature.

I always wondered why we couldnt just put huge catalysts in the stacks of the ships, considering how many ships that are out there, I guess money would be the answer.

I have a source and have known for some time gasoline vehicles will eventually have a gasoline particulate filter or GPF.

it is because of direct injection, they are now standard equipment

Yep. 2.5 PM increased significantly with the introduction of DI. This has been known going back to at least 2009 but the regulations being what they are took years to catch up.

Emissions from ships is quickly diluted. Emissions from vehicles not so much. They tend to stay around and concentrate. Some cities such as Los Angeles became so bad that people were dying/suffering from respiratory related issues.

Gas engines, before GDI, were doing so good. You knew it was only a matter of time before they were screwed up like diesels.

I think that has to do with NOx emissions which is heavily curbed on vehicles today and can show up in other engines depending on the conditions.

That's quite true, but we also have to remember that vehicle density matters similarly. L.A. has always been the canary in the coal mine, as it were. In this province, you could have darned near everyone running a 1970s generation diesel and have little effect. Try that in L.A., and I'd shudder to see the result.
