Onboard desulphuration of marine fuel
The international MARPOL (MARine POLlution) convention sets requirements for significant reductions in the discharge of contaminants, and therefore requires the development of alternative retrofit technologies.
SOxLOW is aiming to develop a desulphuration system for marine fuels (heavy refining products) for continuous onboard treatment.
SEGULA Technologies has developed methodologies for sulphur compound analysis that are suitable for marine fuels and necessary to process them. The Group has conducted hydrocarbon decontamination experiments.
