Marine Scrubber Wastewater Treatment – Marine sox reduction

By 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has implemented a new lower cap on Sulphur emission for international shipping. Inside the Emission Control Areas (ECA) the regulations are even stricter.

By installing a scrubber system, vessels can continue to operate on marine heavy fuel and avoid switching to significant more expensive marine gas oil while operating in IMO regulated areas.

Before discharging the wastewater from the scrubber process, it is essential that the water is cleaned to ensure a better and safe environment. LiqTech has developed a compact and efficient wastewater treatment plant outperforming discharge limits regulated by the IMO. The LiqTech system is fully automated and requires a minimum of maintenance. It has already proven well-suited for this difficult application and has successfully been installed on a large number of vessels both for retrofits and new builds.

Our solution will treat the water from the scrubber tower into a process tank where it is reused again into the scrubber tower.

This enables the ship to run in “closed loop” with no wastewater discharged overboard. Instead, the SOx particle is filterered and concentrated in our Silicon Carbide membranes and further dewatered in a filterpress providing bulk discharge of waste into waste handling station while in port.

We have long-term experience working with top marine scrubber manufacturers, shipowners, shipyards, and have been in this industry for several years with a market proven solution. Please look at our marine scrubber wastewater solution.

LiqTech Filtration Process

Our solution will treat the water from the scrubber tower into a process tank where it is reused again into the scrubber tower.

This enables the ship to run in “closed loop” with no wastewater discharged overboard. Instead, the SOx particle is filterered and concentrated in our Silicon Carbide membranes and further dewatered in a filterpress providing bulk discharge of waste into waste handling station while in port.
