MicroMist Marine comprise scalable scrubber solutions that are designed for each vessel class, while maintaining the same underlying scrubber technology pioneered and proven by ECI over the past 36 years, claims John Tate, president of EnviroCare International, who believes this technology to be a game changer for ship owners and operators.
While current regulations mainly focus on NOx and SO2, MicroMist Marine scrubbers also address particulate matter, sulfate, and visible plumes, Tate remarks.
EnviroCare recently completed testing of the MicroMist Marine scrubber on a diesel engine using high-sulfur distillate fuel to demonstrate SO2 compliance and significant particulate reduction.
The results show that: total sulfur emissions, including both SO2 and sulfate particulate, on engines burning high-sulfur fuels are easily reduced to emission levels below uncontrolled engines burning either 0.1% or 0.5% sulfur fuel, noted Tate, and he added, PM2.5 emissions on engines burning high-sulfur fuels can be reduced to levels below uncontrolled engines burning either 0.1% or 0.5% sulfur fuel.
ECI scrubbers are compatible with all current shipboard systems, and include built-in automation for plug and play operational monitoring.
