Sea transportation is a key component of the globalised economy with over 90% of the world’s trade carried by sea. According to European Commission’s Climate Action (1), the global maritime transport emits around 1 000 million tonnes of CO2, 15 million tonnes of sulphur oxides (SOx), and 25 million tonnes of nitrogen oxides (NOx) annually.

The most feasible current solution combines catalyst technology, to reduce NOx, and a switch to expensive, low sulphur content fuel, to reduce SOx. Whilst the low sulphur content fuel meets the regulations for the ships there is additional CO2 resulting from the refining.

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 SOLUTION / VALUE PROPOSITION

Daphne Technology sells Nanotechnology based exhaust, catalyst-free, dry scrubber (air pollution reduction technology), which allow cargo ships to comply with IMO regulations on the emissions, while still using Heavy Fuel Oil, which come into effect in 2020.

Daphne Technology is currently in the process of building factories and soliciting investment from maritime firms. We are projected to have an estimated 120 ships outfitted with our technology by 2023. The costs of compliance with the IMO regulations are estimated to be $250 billion, based on estimates of switching to Marine Gas Oil.
