CSL, Ecospec Reduce Great Lakes Emissions

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Canada Steamship Lines (CSL), has signed a Letter of Intent with ECOSPEC Marine Technology wherein both parties will work together to develop and install CSNOx technology within the CSL fleet, thus bringing revolutionary ecological technology to the Great Lakes in its ongoing search for solutions in improving the marine industry’s environmental footprint.

The partnership announcement was made by CSL President, Gerry Carter, at Green Marine’s “Green Tech for Shipping 2010” conference held in Montreal, Canada, May 2010.

CSL and Ecospec plan on installing the award winning CSNOx system on one of CSL’s Great Lakes’ vessel later this year in order to validate and obtain certification of the performance and efficiency of the system in a fresh water environment, making the CSL installation the world’s first CSNOx freshwater environment project.

Ecospec CSNOx reduces harmful pollutants like Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxide (NOX) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from emissions of large ocean trading vessels in one process and in a single system, without using harmful chemicals.
