1. A method for cleaning Ocean Going Vessel (OGV) exhaust, the method comprising:

  • capturing the exhaust of the OGV;

    carrying the exhaust to a first system of a maritime emissions control system;

    processing the exhaust in the first system to first reduce the temperature of the exhaust and then to process the reduced temperature flow to generate a first processed flow with reduced Particulate Matter (PM) and reduced Sulfur Dioxide (SO2);

    carrying the first processed flow to a second system of the maritime emissions control system;

    heating the first processed flow, increase the temperature of the first processed flow;

    processing the heated first processed flow in the second system to generate a second processed flow with reduced NOx; and

    releasing the second processed flow to the atmosphere.
