Working with leading scrubber manufacturers, shipowners, and shipyards, LiqTech has many years of experience providing sustainable marine scrubber wastewater systems for closed-loop scrubbers.
Do you have a vessel equipped with an exhaust gas cleaning system (scrubber)? Do you want to be future compliant with IMO regulations and save the ecosystem?
We are ready to convert your open-loop scrubber into a closed-loop system or hybrid scrubber. Under this option, vessels are still allowed to burn heavy fuel oil (HFO), be future IMO compliant, and reuse or discharge clean water. With more than 20 years of experience in the filtration industry and +250 marine scrubber wastewater systems installed, we can provide you with a sustainable marine scrubber wastewater solution for future compliance.
Open-loop scrubbers have been subject to a lot of debate, as open-loop scrubbers produce large amounts of wash water effluent, which is discharged into the sea, usually without any treatment. In open-loop mode, scrubbers emit acidic wash water that is warmer than ambient seawater and contain suspended particulate matter, PAHs, and heavy metals. By converting into a closed-loop system or hybrid scrubber in closed-loop mode with a water treatment solution, you can operate in zero-discharge mode (water reuse) or allow clean water for discharge without the pollutants that damage ecosystems and harm wildlife. Sludge and wastewater (bleed-off water) can be stored onboard and discharged shoreside.
Be future compliant with a LiqTech open-loop conversion solution.
The IMO is already working on an approved work plan focusing on harmonizing the rules for scrubber wash water discharges. Many countries in Europe, together with China, Singapore, United States, India, and many more, are banning open-loop mode.
With our expertise in the marine scrubber industry and wastewater filtration, we will help you make growth sustainable – both in relation to profits and the environment.
