Choose the complete SOx and NOx reduction solution for ship owners

If you are looking for the complete SOx and NOx exhaust gas emission control system for the marine sector, then Yara is unique in being able to offer solutions for both issues. 

Why reduce SOx emissions?

A child

The burning of fossil fuel in diesel engines creates toxic Sulfur Oxides (SOx). Ships are heavy emitters of SOx which can:

  • Disrupt the world’s eco systems  
  • Be damaging to the marine environment  
  • Cause harm to human health – for example, premature mortality, heart attack, lung disease, asthma and other respiratory symptoms 

Stricter global sulfur oxides limits will be imposed in 2020 by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Setting a global sulfur oxides cap will have a positive effect on the air we breathe and save thousands of lives every year. 

Yara delivers exhaust gas cleaning technology to help ship-owners reduce SOx emission levels to meet the IMO’s new lower SOx limit regulations.

Why reduce NOx emissions?

Ship at sea

The burning of fossil fuels in diesel engines creates toxic Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). NOx emission is known to cause local and global health problems such as lung disease and cancer.

NOx emission is also negatively affecting the world’s eco systems and contributes to environmental issues such as:

  • Acid rain 
  • Disrupted vegetation 
  • Fog 
  • Poor water quality

Why choose Yara Marine Technologies?

For reducing SOx

Yara’s Marine Technologies inline scrubber system allows ship owners and operators to meet SOx regulatory requirements.

Yara Marine Technologies have installed over 100 SOx removal inline scrubbers in maritime vessels, and demand is rising. Each inline scrubber can already remove SOx to the legal requirement to be implemented in 2020.

For reducing NOx

Yara delivers environmental technology to clean NOx emissions by up to 99%. The Selective Catalytic Reaction (SCR) system is the only proven technology for cleaning NOx gases and Yara is the market leader in the industry with close to 1,600 maritime SCR systems installed. 

In order to operate, a ship’s SCR system a high purity urea solution is required. The system is sensitive to potential chemical impurities in the urea solution.   

You can depend on quality and purity from NOxCare 40, Yara’s own high-purity urea solution delivered according to AUS40 ISO 18611 for NOx reduction in marine SCR systems.

Yara’s NOxCare 40 builds on decades of expertise in NOx control technology and reagent production and supply. Our global supply platform means you have the reagent you require, where and when you need it.
