Solvay and Andritz announced that the innovative BICAR dry exhaust gas cleaning system, designed to comply with the new sulphur emission regulations issued by the International Maritime Organization for shipping vessels, has successfully been certified by the classification society DNV GL. This achievement and certification are crucial milestones for the future of this technology and confirm Solvay's and Andritz's know-how in exhaust cleaning systems. It will allow the shipping vessels to continue to use High Sulphur Heavy Fuel Oils while reducing drastically their sulphur and fine particles emissions, which will improve very significantly the quality of the air, with a positive impact on human health.

The BICAR dry exhaust gas cleaning system was installed on the RoPAx ferry “Piana” of the French ferry operator La Méridionale, and has successfully been in operation since being commissioned in April 2019. First results are very promising.

The innovative technology uses the SOLVAIR process principals developed by SOLVAY teams, using Bicar as the sorbent for sulphur dioxide removal, and a pulse jet fabric filter for removal of the sulphates and particulates forming. SOLVAIR was recently labeled an Efficient Solution by the SOLAR IMPULSE FOUNDATION as it protects the environment in a profitable way.
