The EnScrub scrubber water treatment system is uniquely designed to treat SOx scrubber water from shipboard EGC systems with discharge results that easily meet the regulatory requirements of MEPC.259(68).
EnScrub is a multistage system that removes Particulate Matter (PM, i.e. soot), and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by combining physical and chemical processes. Sludge is directed to the secondary treatment system for dewatering, while the treated water is sent overboard through an approved monitor.
Benefits of the system:
Simple to use
Low operator costs
Unsurpassed effluent quality
Reduced sludge (up to 99% of treated water is discharged overboard)
The technology driving the EnScrub system has been developed by EnSolve Biosystems in conjunction with a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). EnSolve began its development of the EnScrub system in 2009, with prototype testing from 2011 through 2014. EnSolve recently completed DNV certification testing of a commercial system in 2016.
