Non-Chemical, Closed-Loop Solution​

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set a limit on Sulphur in the fuel oil used by ships in order to reduce Sulphur Oxide (SOx) emissions from ships around the world.​

Ship owners have a choice between adopting to use more expensive, cleaner-burning low-Sulphur fuel or continue to use high-Sulfur fuel and add a Sulfur-trapping exhaust “scrubber” system that treats the ship’s exhaust to remove harmful Sulfur Oxide SOx air emissions.​

H2O offers a range of non-chemical SOx scrubber wastewater treatment systems. The systems occupy a small footprint and are an economical & environmentally friendly solution, allowing the water to be reused in the scrubber in a closed-loop system.

Key Features

  • Small Footprint.  High porosity membranes provide  high flux performance, meaning the system has a the most compact footprint of any water treatment system on the market​
  • Non-Chemical Solution.  Standard water treatment involves several chemical steps, requiring a large footprint & high retention time. H2O generates a high water quality with a single-step filtration process using H2O Silicon Carbide  membranes in combination with a coagulation & precipitation step.​
  • Low Capex – Low Opex.  Low pressure / low power consumption system​
  • Thermally & Chemically Resistant.  Membranes resistant to 800 F and pH 0-14.​
  • Minimal Waste.  Automated dewatering – waste sludge reduced to dry cake for easy disposal at port.​
  • High-Performance Filtration.  H2O Silicon Carbide ultrafiltration membranes are highly robust, long-life membranes.  Guaranteed performance with minimal downtime & maintenance.​
