Over the past decade the our team has successfully designed, built and delivered gas scrubbing systems for a wide range of applications globally.

Our patented design has proved to be very efficient and cost effective both on land and sea. Now in conjunction with our contracted partners at PowerChina SPEM and the establishment of an office in Shanghai alongside our design headquarters in Vancouver, we are able to deliver at almost any scale of capacity around the world.

  • The ENVI-Clean™ system uses the turbulent wet scrubber for flue gas desulphurization in coal and diesel applications.
  • The ENVI-Pure™ system is specified in applications where a broader range of emissions is required, such as waste and biomass incineration.
  • The ENVI-Marine™ is a seawater scrubber using the patented ENVI-Clean™ system.

Dr Andrew Jolly

Non-Executive Director

Dr Jolly is the founder of Equis Energy Limited which specialises in creating, developing and delivering concepts for generating Biomass and Biomass power-only projects. He has focussed on the use of biomass, organic waste and hydrogen; and thus has developed a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory and legislative factors which impact the technical and commercial specification and scale of projects.

A key part of Dr Jolly’s expertise is in the assessing, accreditation and maintenance of renewable energy technologies in respect of schemes such as the Renewables Obligation (RO), Feed in Tariffs (FiTs), Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Combined Heat & Power Quality Assurance (CHPQA). These aspects of clean energy projects are crucial when the consequent benefits of such renewable energy generation schemes can comprise as much as two-thirds of the overall project income.

Dr. Jolly holds a Ph.D. in Energy Studies (1998), an MPhil in Energy Studies (1995) and a B.Eng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering & Business Management (1993).
