At the beginning of July, in the shipyard in Riga (Latvia), the first in the world tests of exhaust gas purification installations from marine diesel engines were carried out, using a hybrid system consisting of an accelerator provided by the Fraunhofer Institute (Germany) and a scrubber, based on data and guidelines of the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, by Biopolinex Sp. z o.o.
Installation effectiveness tests, which are one of the key stages in the implementation of the international project H2020 ARIES ("Development of a hybrid system using the fast electron accelerator to purify exhaust gases in diesel engines used in marine vessels. ”Were conducted in cooperation with institutions from three countries: Poland (Institute of Chemistry and Nuclear Technology as well as Biopolinex, Germany (Fraunhofer Institute) and Latvia (Riga University of Technology) and coordinated by CERN Switzerland.
Despite difficult working conditions and tight deadlines, the project was a huge success. Immediately after commissioning, the pilot installation worked correctly allowing for a high degree of dirt removal. This proved the possibility of integrating the accelerator with the absorber in real conditions. The obtained results will be used to prepare the next stage of hybrid technology implementation works - construction of a pilot installation on board the ship.
The solution implemented in practice is the result of work carried out at IChTJ as part of a project financed by the National Center for Research and Development - Tango 2 "Plasma technology for removing nitrogen oxides from flue gases" and is protected by Polish and European patent applications.
Biopolinex Sp. z o. o. is a company whose activities are related to energy efficiency, rational use of energy in accordance with the principles of sustainable development, and investments in renewable energy sources
