AB  - Project seeks to tackle the shipping industry’s most pressing problem, its large-scale emissions of SOx, NO and PM, by developing a hybrid exhaust gas-cleaning technology that combines an EB accelerator with improved wet-scrubbing technology. It is unique - in a single technological system - addresses all three types of emissions simultaneously. It promises to be cheaper and more efficient than existing solutions. There are two main stages involved: 1) SO2 and NOx oxidation during irradiation of wet gases by the EB from the accelerator and 2) the pollution products absorption into aqueous solution. For the very first time, test trials in the real maritime environment where conducted and attracted interest of maritime industry, policy makers and accelerator community. Proof-of-Concept clearly confirmed potential of this accelerator technology and formed basis for the full-scale project where this hybrid system will be applied to the sea-going ferry on the regular traffic. Considering that this project is of highest relevance to the accelerator community at large, we will be happy to present it and disseminate its promising results along with the related unfolding activities.
