Tittle:
Installation reducing emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) by ships´ engines and comprehensive services in the field of pollution monitoring systems are offered
Summary:
A Polish start-up has developed an innovative system that reduces volume of greenhouse gases produced by ships´ engines. The firm is offering to provide partners with designs of the installation customised to their ships´ specifications. Implementation of the technology in a form of services agreement is proposed to shipyards, shipowners and operators. Moreover, they would like to further improve the system in a partnership with producers of fuel catalysts under a technical cooperation agreement
Description:
International regulations limiting greenhouse gases emissions (GHGs) have put certain new responsibilities on the shipping industry. For example, from 2017 shipowners and operators have to monitor, report and verify carbon dioxide emissions (Regulation 2015/757 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2015). Furthermore, Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78) obliges them to reduce air pollutions by cutting emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), heavy metals, and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). In order to adapt to such new regulatory framework (and probably further restrictions), shipowners and operators have to either buy new ships or replace whole propulsion systems of the old ones.

A company from the North West Poland established in 2015 by scientists has developed a third approach to the challenge. They found that the volume of GHGs emitted by a ship´s engine can be reduced by infusing an active matter to a fuel that induces carbon black and naphthalenes to fully burn. They designed an innovative system consisting of a tank, pumps, conduits, sensors and an injector that adds this catalyst to a ship´s fuel line, thus reducing its carbon footprint and improving fuel efficiency. So far the installation has been successfully implemented on two ships and three further investments are being carried out.

The firm is offering its unique technology to the companies from the shipping and maritime industries under services agreement (shipyards, shipowners and operators). Using data on a ship´s GHGs emissions, they will provide designs of their system customised to the specification of a partner´s ship. Moreover, they are ready to manufacture the system and install it in a location selected by a partner. If a ship doesn´t already have a device to assess and monitor GHGs emissions, the firm can help to identify the best measurement method and supply necessary apparatus.

The company is also interested in possible improvements of the technology, thus they would like to cooperate with producers of fuel catalysts under a technical cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
Carried out tests show a decrease of emissions of:
· carbon black - by 53-73%;
· particulate matter (PM) - by 40-62%;
· soluble organic fraction (SOF) - by 35-62%;
· hydrocarbons - by up to 30%
· unburnt hydrocarbons - by 19-40%;
· carbon monoxide (CO) in low load situation - by 38%.
Moreover, fuel consumption is reduced by 4-12%.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Services agreement:
· Type of Partner Sought: shipyards, shipowners and operators;
· Role of Partner Sought: A partner is expected to order customised design of the system and - if needed - other engineering services concerning control of air pollutions from ships; provide data on GHGs emissions, and install the system on the ship.

Technical cooperation agreement:
· Type of Partner Sought: producers of fuel catalysts;
· Role of Partner Sought: A partner is expected to provide a more effective active matter than the one currently used, and to help optimise the system for maximal utilisations of that chemical.
