A pollution cutting water-in-diesel (WiDE) fuel emulsion has been selected to power Team Britannia’s multi-million powerboat on its 24 000 mile world record attempt later this year.
The company behind the revolutionary fuel, Clean Fuel Ltd, produces a range of emulsions (water, diesel and an emulsifier), which, when burnt, reduce emissions of harmful pollutants such as particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) when compared to traditional fuels.
Note 'water in Diesel' which is inferior to QFI's 'Oil in Water' MSAR made from residue but should prove a bit of publicity for emulsions. Whether it's good publicity depends if it finishes I guess!
Ionada Corporation (Ionada) this week says it has completed the installation of the world's first scrubber that uses ceramic membrane technology.
The SOx removal system, which will be used for Emissions Control Area (ECA) compliance, was installed on MG Management SAS (MG Management) RO-RO carrier, NOLHANAVA, at COSCO Nantong Shipyards (Cosco Shipyards) in Nantong China.
Where traditional scrubber systems spray sea water or sodium hydroxide into the exhaust path, and thus create wash water, the membrane system does not create such discharge - something Ionada says has both environmental and energy efficiency benefits. Shipowners can achieve the benefits of fuel cost savings while meeting ECA requirements
"We look forward to completing the commissioning of the Membrane Scrubber during the next few weeks and publishing the test results," said Edoardo Panziera, Ionada CEO.
Cosco Shipyard says it has a cooperation agreement with Jiangsu Ionada Environmental Protection Technology Co., LTD, which gives the shipyard the priority right to use the scrubber technology.
"With the introduction of Ionada's Membrane Scrubber, shipowners can achieve the benefits of fuel cost savings while meeting ECA requirements, with the added assurance of no environmental challenges to overboard discharge as well as simplified retrofit installation," stated Ionada.
In August, Ionada announced that it had won the contract to supply its Membrane Scrubber exhaust gas cleaning system to NOLHANAVA, marking Ionada's first such commercial order.
What we don't want is some MM pump and dump. Ahead of the next set of good news lets all be happy with a modest steady rise any thing more than this will be a bubble waiting to burst. So please no mention of targets
