Ionada Incorporated finalist for the 2015 Ship Efficiency Awards, London England

posted Aug 19, 2015, 9:14 AM by Ionada Media

For Immediate Release August 19, 2015 - Concord, Ontario, Canada.  


IONADA  SHORTLISTED FOR THE SHIP EFFICIENCY AWARDS 2015

Ionada’s Membrane Scrubber ™ has been named as a finalist for the 2015 Ship Efficiency Awards, hosted by Lloyd’s Register and taking place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London, straight after Ship Efficiency: The Event 2015, held in association with Inmarsat.

After much consideration by the awards panel of judges, Ionada was selected to become one of the five finalists for the Environmental Technology Award.

Membrane Scrubber technology contains the absorption fluid (NaOH)  in micro-porous ceramic membranes. Installed in the exhaust, after the economizer, the sulphur is stripped from the exhaust as pure sodium sulphite salts. This dramatically reduces the amount of by-product produced with traditional spray towers, either closed or open loop.  The result is a true ZERO overboard discharge  scrubber system. The salts are stored on-board and discharged in port. Because of the pure nature of the sodium sulphite, it has further applications in a number of industries such as paper making, photography, and food preservation.   

Membrane Scrubber technology  eliminates complicated wash water systems, monitoring systems, overboard valves and future-proofs the vessel owner form expanding Zero Discharge regulations.

The second annual Ship Efficiency Awards, hosted by Lloyd’s Register and organised by Fathom, will recognise and celebrate the organisations and individuals within the maritime sector that excel in efficient operations, implement fresh thinking offer proven efficiency benefits and technological innovation.

“We are pleased to be recognized as a marine environmental technology innovation leader.  This nomination is a great honor that inspires us to promote our clean technology solutions globally"  stated Ionada CEO, Edoardo Panziera.  

The winner of the Environmental Technology award will be announced at the Ship Efficiency Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 9 September, straight after Ship Efficiency: The Event.

Ionada Membrane Scrubber™ Sea Trials

posted Jun 1, 2015, 2:10 PM by Ionada Media

For Immediate Release June 26, 2015 - Concord, Ontario, Canada.  

Scrubbing Technology Evolves - Ionada announces completion of Innovative Membrane Scrubber™ Sea Trials on Bulk Carrier.                

With the ability to provide true Zero Discharge Ionada’s Membrane Scrubber is the first evolution in Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) technology for SOx removal.

 "The results from our Membrane Scrubber™ sea trials exceeded the target performance objectives, with our SO2/CO2 ratio ten times lower than the 0.1% S equivalent regulatory standard. Our pilot installation, running 10% of total exhaust gas output for an 8MW engine, surpassed all our benchmarks for reliability, ease of operation, and installation, said Thomas Gehring, VP of Product Development.   “We have completed a major milestone in our commercial development - demonstrating the performance and sea worthiness of our Membrane Scrubber™.”

The absorption  solution in the nanoporous ceramic membranes wick the sulfur oxide out of the exhaust gas eliminating the wash water discharge issues common to traditional open and closed loop scrubber suppliers. This in turn reduces the equipment and instrumentation required, greatly simplifying the installation. 

Edoardo Panziera, Ionada's Founder and CEO went on to say “I am proud of our commissioning team and their work to complete the Sea Trials one month ahead of schedule.”

“Ionada would like to thank,  the ship owner Canada Steamship Lines, the crew of the Baie St. Paul, Transport Canada, the on-board validation performed by Environment Canada, and Lloyd's Register, whose experienced professionals made the commissioning and trials such a resounding success. “ 

“We are open and transparent in sharing our Sea Trial results, and encourage those interested to contact us to learn more about our testing and obtain a copy of our test reports, or directly from Transport Canada for the testing performed by Environment Canada"
