SOLVAir® Marine is a SOx scrubber system designed to comply with International Maritime Organization 2020 regulations and beyond. In addition, Solvair Marine removes 99% of particles, doesn’t release waste water back to the sea and can be installed without dry docking.

Thirty years ago Solvay has started to develop a process for flue gas treatment, which is today applied by more than 500 satisfied customers worldwide. In light of IMO regulations for the reduction of SOx emissions on ships, our team investigated how to adapt this well proven land solution to vessels. The first application will be a joint collaboration of Solvay, La Méridionale and Andritz.

Why switching to SOLVAir® Marine?

  • Be compliant with IMO 2020 regulations and beyond

SOLVAir® Marine solution neutralizes SOx and 99% of particles from your HFO fuel without releasing any effluent back in the sea or in the air. Moreover SOLVAir® Marine facilitates residues treatment on land.

  • Choose a capital light SOx scrubber system, quick to install and easy to operate

The price gap between HFO and compliant fuel is steadily increasing. This leads us to believe that payback time for our SOLVAir® Marine scrubber system will be very interesting even for the most demanding ship owners.
