Ship scrubber system selection guide

The Ship Operations Cooperative Program (SOCP), which is a US industry-government partnership, has announced the release of a study on exhaust gas cleaning systems (EGCS), also known as scrubbers. The study was conducted in light of new regulations for ships operating in emission control areas (ECAs) from 2015. Ships operating in ECAs will be required to use fuel with a sulphur content of no more than 0.10 per cent or install abatement technology that can achieve equivalent emission reductions.
