Limiting global warming requires the maritime sector to transition to a more efficient and sustainable operation. Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, such as carbon dioxide and methane is vital to limit the global temperature rise (IPCC, 2021). Several legislative initiatives are in effect or are being discussed, including the IMO GHG strategy and the FuelEU Maritime initiative. This article discusses the potential of waste heat recovery (WHR) technologies to reduce the fuel consumption of dredging vessels. Available WHR technologies are compared based on working principle and operational performance for different types and ratings of internal combustion engines.
