Our exhaust gas cleaning systems use wet scrubbing technology to effectively reduce SOx emissions from ship engines, boilers, and heaters, in retrofits and new builds.

BELCO® Marine Scrubbers are fully automated and manage themselves through GPS signals. Our low pressure drop vessel design is sleek and slim. The BELCO design may replace the need for a silencer. Additionally, the BELCO scrubber saves precious and lucrative onboard space because there is no by-pass. Our open tower design is inherently lighter and easier to maintain than other scrubber designs allowing for years of continuous operation to match or exceed time between scheduled dry-docks.

BELCO® offers three design solutions for ship exhaust management to meet a variety of requirements and marine conditions. All designs have the flexibility to operate dry with no scrubbing “Run Dry” functionality to allow maximum flexibility when moving in and out of Emission Control Areas (ECAs). They are: Open Loop, Closed Loop, and Hybrid.

BELCO® offers single-inlet and multi-inlet scrubbers.
