Yara Marine Technologies offers complete emission control systems for Sox and NOx to the marine market.
The company was established in 2014 following the acquisition of Green Tech Marine, by global industrial chemical corporation Yara International. Green Tech Marine has since its origin in 2008 been a forerunner in the emission reduction technology industry, being the first company offering the inline SOx scrubber to the marine segment.
Yara is also the largest supplier of NOx abatement equipment - Selective Catalytic Reduction Reactors (SCR) - in the world, with more than 1,300 SCR systems installed since year 2000. Installing Yara SCR systems allow marine customers to easily achieve reduction in NOx emissions by up to 99%. Whether ferries, seismic vessels, fishing travellers or supply vessels or yachts, Yara designs and delivers efficient and compact SCR systems that fit any vessel type.
Our small, lightweight scrubbers replace the existing silencer, leaving only a very small footprint that does not affect either passenger or cargo space. At Yara, we produce our scrubbers in anti-corrosion steel with the same lifetime as the vessel in which it is installed. Any scrubber system in operation is exposed to an extremely corrosive environment due to the large temperature variations (from ambient right up to 400°C) combined with presence of acids and seawater. Thanks to our investment in high quality components, Yara scrubbers provide long-term durability and greatly reduce the risk of corrosion breakdown and expensive replacement costs.
Our scrubbers are tailor-made to any engine size or vessel type and can also operate on magnesium oxide (MgO) as the alkali in closed-loop mode as opposed to the more hazardous caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) that other manufacturers use. In addition to being completely safe for the crew to handle, magnesium oxide is also a much more cost-effective alkali to use than caustic soda. Although the price per ton is roughly the same for both additives, the volume of magnesium oxide needed in a scrubber system is only approximately one quarter of the corresponding caustic soda requirement.
As the first inline scrubber supplier in the marine market and with more than 1,300 SCR systems successfully installed, Yara Marine Technologies is the market leader that will help customers achieve long-term sustainable solutions to the worldwide emission challenge.
Yara's knowledge, products and solutions grow farmers', distributors' and industrial customers' businesses profitably and responsibly, while nurturing and protecting the earth's resources, food and environment. Our fertilisers, crop nutrition programmes and technologies increase yields, improve product quality and reduce the environmental impact of agricultural practices.
Our industrial and environmental solutions improve air quality by reducing emissions from industry and transportation, and serve as key ingredients in the production of a wide range of goods. We foster a culture that promotes the safety of our employees, contractors and societies.
Founded in 1905 to solve emerging famine in Europe, today, Yara has a worldwide presence, with more than 12,000 employees and sales to more than 150 countries.
