That is one way, although I don't know how to do that from a technical perspective other than nuclear.

Other methods are to avoid using heavy fuel oil (essentially road tar) or on engines in that size category, scrubbers can accomplish a lot.

A cargo ship is essentially a floating power plant in terms of the MWs involved to operate them.

Personally I think the most effective way to reduce cargo ship pollution is to build products more locally.

Sorry for going to far off in a tangent, but any way that is why I don't feel the least pang of ill will toward people who tune their engines.
