A new generation of scrubbing technology Simple patented design - No moving parts or media - Straight through or bypass designs
Customised for you
1. DISCUSSION > PROPOSAL > CONTRACT
Our expert team of Pacific Green Marine engineers will discuss your fleet requirements and work closely with you to create a costed proposal for deployment with minimal impact.
2. SURVEY > PLAN > BUILD
Once the proposed approach is agreed our Global Service Team will survey your fleet, formulate a plan and then meet your vessels in a port of mutual convenience after which our specialist team will then design a custom scrubber solution for your ship and an installation location identified to maximize the cost benefit and minimize the operation downtime of each ship based upon its trading pattern.
3. IMPLEMENT > TEST > COMISSION
Following managing the installation the Pacific Green Marine Team will supervise the sea trails and class certification ensuring this is seamlessly managed”. Ship owners can operate with peace of mind that our dedicated Global Service Team are available to support any after sales service.
The ENVI-Marine™ process is a simple concept. The flue gases are first quenched, then cleaned by specialized frothing through pure seawater using our patented TurboHead™ process, before being polished and released as harmless salts.
ENVI-Marine Systems are fully flexible and can be designed as open loop, open loop closed ready and fully closed systems.
For vessels running heavy fuel oil this system offers industry-leading ROI and will clean the exhaust to international emission standards and beyond into the future.
- Using the natural alkalinity of seawater to absorb SO2 emissions produced by marine engines
- Post treatment discharge of neutralized sulphur into sea
- Using caustic soda (NaOH) as a supplemental reagent when transiting areas with low seawater alkalinity
Flexible layout due to:
- Patented horizontal head
- Potential for component separation
- Able to configure footprint to fit space available
- Compact footprint due to efficiency
The ENVI-Marine™ system is designed to operate in either open or closed modes, depending on the emission discharge regulations for the waters in which the ship is located.
Open Mode – Single pass raw seawater, scrubber effluent returned to the sea.
Closed Mode – No overboard discharge permitted. Wash water is recirculated with NaOH added to neutralize sulphur. Solution is processed and contaminants are stored for disposal ashore.
At the heart of our technologies lies the secret of the unique patented process which forms the basis of the ENVI-Marine™ and ENVI-Clean™ systems.
Technically the company's philosophy from the beginning has been to build a device providing the maximum possible molecular contact area between the harmful exhaust gases and the neutralising reagent. This allows the system to be smaller and more efficient, therefore more cost effective in terms of both capital cost & operating cost for any given capacity.
Pacific Green Technologies has successfully achieved this by use of a specially designed foaming TurboHead™ which creates convection and turbulence in a unique way.
The patented scrubbing heads all have this unique reaction process, combining turbulence and circulation of the exhaust gas maximising contact with the chosen reagent solution, be it plain seawater, Limestone, or Sodium Hydroxide solution.
The mandate throughout has been to fulfil the demands of our customers who want us to produce the most efficient emission control solutions in the most cost effective way.
Ship heavy fuel oil is the most harmful transport fuel in use today and the shipping industry is by far the world’s biggest emitter of sulphur.
For this reason the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has adopted a global sulphur cap. This requires all ships to either use max 0.5% sulphur content Marine Gas Oil, or fit a scrubbing device capable of removing the sulphur to an equivalent level of MFO emissions or better as from 1st January 2020.
The Pacific Green Marine mission is to help ship owners, shipyards and naval architects build & retrofit the technology necessary to enable an easy change to a low Sulphur environment, a change that gives full compliance with the regulations, done as quickly and conveniently as possible and a change that enables HFO (Heavy Fuel Oil) as a fuel to be viable far into the future.
Nearly 90% of transport around the globe is by sea using HFO and as a consequence is responsible for huge amounts of pollutants, mainly sulphur, into the earth’s atmosphere.
As marine emission regulations bite harder in 2020 there will be a major demand for marine scrubber technology around the World.
Many companies simply will not have the capacity to meet this demand. We believe this gives Pacific Green Marine the decisive advantage when it comes to converting both individual ships and larger fleets to a cleaner future due to our unrivalled capacity.
