ALTUM collaborates with the development of first marine scrubber with 100% Spanish technology. The project is led by Fugoroba Instalaciones y Servicios, and is financed by Innovation and Science Spanish Ministry.
Project is based on technology developed by Counterfog, by an innovative fog generation with nanometric liquid droplets.
Fog eliminates sulphur oxides and other contaminant particles from marine engines exhausts.
Counterfog® technology was created under contract number 312804 of the seventh research & development program of the EU Commission (FP7).
As a well recognized technical design office, ALTUM leads project at phase 2, with the design and commissioning of a prototype in a vessel from ERSHIP.
