sulphur emissions control area

Context and Regulation of Desulfurization

From 1 January 2020, the limit for sulphur in fuel oil used on board ships operating outside designated emission control areas is reduced to 0.50% m/m (mass by mass). There is an even stricter limit of 0.10% m/m in effect in emission control areas (ECAS) which have been established by IMO.

The use of exhaust scrubber (or Exhaust Gas Cleaning system) to wash the exhaust gasses is playing a key role in tackling these new challenges. And for scrubbers operations, MH53S Mare is the best in class alkali.

MH53S Mare in closed-loop and hybrid scrubbers

In wet Exhaust Gas Cleaning systems, both closed-loop and hybrid scrubbers require an alkali for neutralization and scrubbing of sulfur oxides. MH53S MARE the safest and highly effective alkali for marine EGCS operation.

New or existing scrubbers can be easily adapted to the use of MH53S Mare. TIMAB Magnesium is working in close cooperation with ship owners and scrubber manufacturers to ensure proper implementation.
