Project: High-performance Packings for Seawater Desulfurization on Marine Ships

Acronym HiPaSEED (Reference Number: 12772)
Duration 01/05/2019 - 03/05/2022
Project Topic SO2 emissions from marine ship engines are subject of stricter abatement regulations. Commonly, flue gases are treated by absorption in packed scrubbers utilizing seawater. In the project, new high-performance tower packings tailored for this distinct application will be developed based on proper modelling of the absorption system, CFD simulations and experimental validations. As main result, a new tower packing tailored for seawater desulfurization on ships will be available for the market.
