TECO 2030 ADDS HYBRID AND CLOSED LOOP OPTIONS TO FUTURE FUNNEL SCRUBBER

TECO 2030 ADDS HYBRID AND CLOSED LOOP OPTIONS TO FUTURE FUNNEL SCRUBBER

Wednesday, April 21, 2021 

Norwegian emissions-reduction company TECO 2030 says that its Future Funnel exhaust gas cleaning system has been further developed and now offers hybrid and closed loop configurations alongside the already existing open loop version.

The company says that the way is now open for further development in reducing SOx, NOx, and further improvement of PM and BC emission reductions, with ultimate integration of CO2 capture technology.

The closed loop system is primarily used for vessels operating in areas where discharges overboard are prohibited, and the alkalinity of the seawater is low. The exhaust gases are washed on board, and substances are collected in a separate tank on board, which is emptied into ports for appropriate further treatment.

The hybrid system can be used as either an open or closed loop, depending on the requirements and rules of the geographical location. This system gives the shipowner a more flexible control of emissions and environmental impact.

Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030, said: “We are proud to expand our emissions reduction technologies to further improve our portfolio to meet our customers' needs. TECO 2030 Future Funnel is now ready for all geographical regulations globally."
