True Hybrid Scrubber Study

The piloting study “True Hybrid Scrubber” formed a substantial part of the CEF Action “Back from Black – Study and deployment of the affordable scrubber retrofitting technology for SME shipowners” (Agreement No INEA/CEF/TRAN/M2014/1032923). It was based on the product development work of
closed loop scrubber that had led to a full-scale prototype installation in 2013.

The background of the project was in the strict sulphur limits introduced to shipping in the sulphur emission control areas (SECAs) on January 1st, 2015. The low sulphur requirements limited to specific geographical areas tend to distort the competition within the European Union by raising the cost of short sea shipping. The competition problem has significant impact on the manufacturing industry in the SECA, as well as on shipping business. Especially small and medium size (SME) shipping companies are under pressure as the needed investments are most challenging in today’s economic and financial environment.

The Global Project included the project development, demonstration and deployment phases as shown in the figure on the right, drawn in the phase when the grant application for the Connecting Europe Facility was made. The True Hybrid Scrubber study aimed to
1) demonstrate the technical functioning of a hybrid scrubber that was based on known
technology of open loop scrubber and the closed loop system developed by Langh
Companies and to
2) turn the scrubber into a standardised industrial product.
