A brand new approach on global emission and scrubbing processes is finally here with CSNOx™ technology. Using seawater or freshwater treated with this technology transforms existing emission and scrubbing systems into highly efficient installations. All current legislated environmental and emission regulations will be easily surpassed.
CSNOx is a low-cost system capable of dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions from ships, power plants, refineries, and other fossil fuel-burning sites. The system, is the first of its kind in the world capable of significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and nitrogen oxide (NOx), all in a single system and by a single process. The CSNOx technology not only effectively removes emissions that contribute to climate change but does so without producing secondary pollutants or generating further CO2 emissions. Its compact size and low cost strengthen even further its potential for widespread implementation and positive impact on the environment on a global scale.
At the heart of CSNOx is Ecospec’s proprietary Ultra-Low Frequency Electrolysis System, through which freshwater or seawater is fed to make it alkaline, reactive, and effective in removing CO2, SO2, and NOx through reductive absorption. It is then pumped through the exhaust stack to abate the flue gas, with the removed pollutants converted into harmless substances found naturally in the water. After abatement, the wash water may be further treated and recycled back to the abating process if water supply is limited, especially for land-based applications.
So what is CSNOx™ technology? In short, a true all-in-one system that effectively reduces green house gases (GHG)
and pollutants like Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matters (PM).
Conventional technologies offer mainly “piece meal” solutions for each pollutant and green house gas (GHG). As a result, the total cost for meeting all emission requirements and net carbon reduction can be very high. Some technologies even react with other pollutants or GHG due to their natural residual effects. With CSNOx™ technology, there’s no need to rely on reagents like lime or caustic sodas, urea or ammonia. The overall operational and power consumption costs of consumables, storage, handling and logistics will be slashed. Costly and unhealthy operations are transformed into highly effective and safe operations. CSNOx™ technology also removes the long-term storage safety concerns like carbon capture and storage (CCS) that other abatement technologies for GHG (e.g. CO2) entail.
