The alternative solution is scrubbers but from an environmental perspective, the currently available scrubbers meet the regulations to reduce air pollution but discharge the captured SOx into the ocean, which contributes to the acidification of the ocean. Learn More

OUR SOLUTIONS

Daphne Technology, a Swiss-Swedish cleantech company, has developed a pollution conversion innovation, that upcycles pollutants into useful products. This brings financial benefits and enables shipowners to comply with various regulations while keeping Clean Air and Clean Seas.

Daphne Technology is currently in the process of delivering first systems and soliciting investment from maritime firms.  The costs of compliance with the IMO regulations were estimated in 2019 by Golden Sachs to be $250 billion.

With accelerated climate change, the international community is looking into regulating more seaborne pollutants, like methane, ammonia, black carbon, VOC, and more. We at Daphne Technology, have a future agnostic technology that tackles multiple toxic emissions.
