These innovative systems are equipped with catalytic filters and seawater scrubbers, devised and designed by an Italian company partner of Nicro and among the world leaders in the sector.
As a result of increasingly stringent regulations imposed on shipping companies that use HFO (heavy fuel oil) in order to limit pollutant emissions into emission control areas (ECA), the company has begun to gradually approach the marine sector.
More specifically, Nicro manufactures components for systems that purify the pollutants contained in exhaust gases of marine diesel engines of large ships, such as cruise liners, cargo ships and ferries.
These systems are specifically designed to remove SOx (sulphur oxides), in order to control the emissions of the various pollutants in the air and in water and to help lower the levels of sulphur dioxide, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, carbon dioxide, soot and ash.
This technology plays a crucial role in limiting the effects of navigation on the environment and on ports and coastal areas.
