Hyundai Heavy Industries develops emission purifierHyundai Heavy Industries became the world’s first company to develop an eco-friendly device that purifies emissions from high pressure engines, named High Pressure Selective Catalytic Reduction (HP SCR), according to the company on Wednesday. It plans to install the device on a 20,600-cubic-meter (727,482-cubic-feet) LPG carrier being built by the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, on Friday. The new technology, which satisfies the environmental regulations introduced by the International Maritime Organization, is expected to be the company’s new source of profit.
The device reduces a maximum 99 percent of the emitted Nitrous Oxide, a pollutant produced from large-size vessel engines under high temperature, 300 to 520 degrees Celsius, and high pressure, one to five bar.
