Wärtsilä and Ecospec Global Technology, owner of the CSNOx emissions abatement technology, recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together towards the common goal of improving the environment by providing the world with clean power solutions.
 
By combining the joint expertise of Wärtsilä and Ecospec, the carbon footprint of both marine and onshore heavy industries can be significantly reduced through the development of clean power solutions. The aim is to achieve the lowest possible CO2 emissions, near zero SOx emissions - even when using heavy residual fuel, and to attain the capability to meet future NOx emission requirements.
 
Under the MOU, Wärtsilä is responsible for integrating the CSNOx system into various engine applications. This includes the engineering, installation, supervision, project management, and commissioning of the system for both newbuildings and retrofits. Ecospec, as the supplier of the CSNOx system, would be responsible for supplying the key components of the system.
 
Ecospec CSNOx is an emissions abatement system capable of removing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from greenhouse gases, while at the same time removing, in a single system and in one process, sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and other pollutants, without the use of harmful chemicals. CSNOx serves as the only practical technology with the ability to remove CO2, the main culprit for global warming, from exhaust gases in significant quantities. Its wash water quality surpasses IMO standards, and the discharge water is, therefore, either neutral or beneficial to the environment, and does not result in secondary pollution or problems related to disposal or storage.
