Vessel operators have two approaches they can take -- use ultra-low-sulfur fuels or install a so-called "exhaust scrubber
" that will clean the vessel's emissions and reduce the emissions.
Clean Marine provides marine exhaust scrubber
systems with proven systems well suited to tankers, the company said.
Clean Marine AS is a leading provider of marine exhaust scrubber
systems with proven systems well suited to tankers.
An exhaust scrubber
will ensure cleaner emissions from the ship's twin funnels.
Oxides of Sulfur and Nitrogen along with particulates and unburned hydrocarbons are removed into the very high volumes of wash water sprayed into the exhaust scrubber
Poly Shield's CEO, Rasmus Norling, said: "We believe that our new DSOX-15 system will not only remove the sulfur but will also reduce the financial burden associated with current exhaust scrubber
technology." Norling further added, "For the Maritime Industry, the Poly Shield DSOX-15 exhaust emission technology is a quantum leap forward in environmental compliance."
Marine fuels containing no more than 0.5% sulfur by weight, down from the 3.5% currently used, to power ocean-going vessels will be required for ships without exhaust scrubbers
In recent years their operations have diversified from marine maintenance into "greening" the seafaring sector by installing state-ofthe-art exhaust scrubbers
- which reduce carbon emissions - into cruise liners and cargo transporters.
Over the longer term, exhaust scrubbers
may be installed, or engines converted to run LNG.
