Scrubber project receives CARB approval

Clean Air Engineering–Maritime has received approval from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for its latest vessel stack exhaust capture and treatment system, the ShoreKat. This shore-based technology is designed to reduce emissions while minimising the impact on vessel performance and operating costs.

The ShoreKat technology is an air pollution control system that removes particulate matter, nitrogen oxide and other harmful pollutants from exhaust gasses produced by ships and other marine vessels. The technology uses ceramic filters as part of its process to capture and treat pollutants from exhaust gas before it is released as clean air into the atmosphere.

The standalone and self-powered system can be customised and modified to fit any ship’s funnel. As a mobile shore-based system, it can be placed into position to avoid interfering with ship assist, bunkering or cargo handling. It can be placed before a vessel arrives and begin service immediately, operating the entire time the vessel is in port, removing tons of harmful toxins from communities surrounding port complexes.

The approval concludes a CARB-sponsored grant project issued to Pasha Terminals LP as part of the Green Omni Terminal Project in the Port of Los Angeles.
