Mecmar proposes the use of pure ammonia to reduce NOx pollution and weight demands in exhaust gas systems.

As stated in the newspaper 'Bergens Tidende', 1st of february 2011, Mecmar applied to the Norwegian Maritime Directorate for permission to install their new Direct Ammonia Injection system on board the rescue vessel «Kristian Gerhard Jebsen» in Bergen. This would decrease the weight demand and pollution compared to the commonly used Urea Injection system, which requires a large amount of water to be transported.
