Introducing SETH™, a patented, state-of-the-art technology to capture and reduce air pollution from oceangoing ships docked in ports to near zero. Air pollution constitutes both a health and an environmental problem that by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimation, costs the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars per year. Please watch the video below to learn how our system is the best solution for this problem.

Maritime Sector

There are many different type of vessels and berth configuration in the maritime world but we can say in general that the pollution problems within ports are the same relative to fuel-oil combustion. SETH™ offers a standardized solution of pollution mitigation services for ports that do not require retrofitting or costly modifications to both the port infrastructure or ships in general.

At Greener Process Systems we combine the process knowledge and resources of an engineering firm with equipment fabrication and supply capabilities tto provide a suite of quality engineering services with SETH™.

SETH™

Air Pollution Reduction System for Ships Docked in Ports
(patented E.U., patent pending U.S.)

Download: Pollutant Emissions in Ports: A Comprehensive Review ( 2021)

A single SETH system simultaneously removes different types of pollutants present in ship exhaust (NOx, SOx, PM, Heavy Metals). The catalytic process abatement efficiency is extremely high (>95% on average). The system takes advantage of a dry process without the use of any solvents or any liquid, and so no liquid waste is generated from it, which can result in water contamination (see scrubbing system failures).

Advanced robotics make this system highly adaptable and versatile designed to reach multiple ship’s exhaust funnels simultaneously independently from their shape and form. The system is fully automated and does not require direct human intervention.

ECO-BERTH / MULTIPLE AUXILIARIES

SETH utilizes different solutions to accommodate each port necessity without interfering with normal operations. Features Smart Eco-Barge when the risk of interference with the harbor operations must be avoided (cargo, container ships, etc.) and Smart Eco-Berth when the occupation of part of the quay doesn’t create any interference with the normal harbor operations.

SMART ECO-BARGE

The Smart Eco-Barge is a compact and versatile solution that is suited for any port where the space available on the doc to place the Emission Treatment Device ( ETD ) & conduits is limited. The entire system is fitted into a barge, and it can reach ship exhaust almost anywhere while docking or anchoring.

DRY WASTE DISPOSAL

The dry waste, classified as harmless special industrial solids, is stored in the Emission Treatment Device’s ( ETD ) waste bins that can be unloaded periodically for disposal by local waste management companies.

SPECIAL FEATURES

•Equipped with 2 Electrical Engines
•Air-cooled (does not contribute to water warming)
•Power source available as Full-Electric or Hybrid. Full-Electric systems are equipped with swappable batteries. Hybrid systems are equipped with power generators that have exhaust connected to the Emission Treatment Device ( ETD )
•Spatial recognition and fully automated (it positions itself)
•Rapid Release – does not interfere with normal port operations
•Low Noise Fan and Ventilation (under 80db)

ABATEMENT DATA

•NOx removal effectiveness 90%
•SOx removal effectiveness 95%
•Diesel Particulate removal effectiveness 98%
•Heavy Metals removal effectiveness 98%
•The system also breaks down CO2 as a secondary reaction of the neutralization of SOx by means of alkaline sorbents. •CO2 abatement in average conditions (for small tonnage ships) is about 100 tons/year/ship*. CO2 abatement in average conditions up to 1000 tons/year/ship* (for medium tonnage ships).

*The values can change according to the temperature of the fumes given to the treatment and the size of the vessel power source.


SMART ECO-BERTH

The Smart Eco-Berth is a system configuration perfect for larger ports where the emission treatment device (ETD) the ductwork and the emission capturing device (ECD) are installed on the dock site. The ETD can be proportionally sized to serve several ECD  and multiple docking stations to capture and treat the emission of multiple stationing ships.

DRY WASTE DISPOSAL

The dry waste, classified as harmless special industrial solids, is stored in the Emission Treatment Device’s ( ETD ) waste bins that can be unloaded periodically for disposal by local waste management companies.

SPECIAL FEATURES

•Equipped with railings for ductwork to extend and adjust the positioning of derrick along the dock
•Equipped with overpass structure to allow service vehicles and people to transit underneath                   
•Spatial recognition and fully automated (it positions itself)
•Rapid Release It does not interfere with normal port operations
•Low Noise Fan and Ventilation (under 80db)

ABATEMENT DATA
