Clean air and water is essential for our mutual well being. Ionada™ provides innovative technology solutions that keep our air and waters clean.
Our Membrane Scrubber™ system cleans the exhaust gas from heavy fuel marine engines and power plants, eliminating harmful particulates including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Ionada™ applies the high efficiency, reliability, and low energy consumption of membrane technology to Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS). The result is an EGCS that is smaller, and more energy efficient than competitive wet or dry scrubbers – making it the ideal solution for shipowners and power plants. Owners and operators are able to achieve a rapid return on investment by continuing to utilize low cost residual fuels and avoid the high cost of switching to distillate fuels to meet stringent emission requirements.
Maritime shipping is the most cost effective and efficient way to transport large goods around the world. There are approximately 50,000 merchant ships that trade internationally, responsible for moving 90% of world trade. Clean and sustainable marine transportation industries are an important part of global trade, especially to those living in coastal communities and lake areas.
Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) power generation continues to contribute a significant portion of the global power supply, especially in regions with limited access to lower cost, cleaner burning, liquefied natural gas (LNG). As a residual product, HFO is a relatively inexpensive fuel, typically 30% - 50% less expensive than distillate fuels. The global increase in oil production will continue to keep oil prices low for the foreseeable future, making HFO power generation one of the most cost effective and reliable sources of electric power.

“membrane technology keeps flue gasses separate from the absorption solution, and selectively collecting SOx makes a lot of sense to us, avoiding water contamination with hydrocarbons, complex separation processes before discharge, and significant amounts of sludge generation typical of wet scrubber technologies.”
