[Third Mission ] of LowCarbon
We make the world’s sky blue again
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) generated in the combustion process is a precursor to fine dust, along with nitrogen oxides (NOx)
and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) under the World Health Organization classifies fine dust
as a group 1 carcinogen. The WHO states that seven million people die prematurely every year due to fine dust.
LowCarbon is determined to restore the blue skies to pass on to future generations through our climate technology.
DIC(Desulfurization In Combustion) An innovative desulfurization solution that fundamentally removes sulfur dioxide generated
in the combustion process of fossil fuels, by elimination in the combustion furnace
DIC is based on GTS, a pre-combustion desulfurization agent for solid fuels such as coal used in power plants, and LCLS,
a pre-combustion desulfurization treatment agent for liquid fuels such as bunker oil used in ships.
The advantages of DIC are the relative simplicity of the facilities and the efficiency in cost management and space utilization.
In addition, desulfurization in the combustion process reduces the operating load of FGD, thereby dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
GTSAn innovative desulfurization material leading DIC
This is a pre-combustion desulfurization treatment material for land-based use such as in coal-fired power plants.
The reliability of this product has been attested by its New Excellent Technology (NET) certification and its registration as an “excellent procurement product.”
LCLSAn innovative marine desulfurizer that provides the solution to comply with the IMO 2020 Sulfur Cap
LCLS, a pre-treatment desulfurization additive that enables the continuous use of Bunker C oil, a high sulfur fuel oil used by 80% of the 94,000 ships across the world, ensures not only the stability of ship engines tailored for use with Bunker C oil, but also economic efficiency by saving ship oil.
Compared to LNG-fueled ships, Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO), and desulfurization scrubbers, which are being recognized as solutions to the IMO 2020 Sulfur Cap, LCLS, a pretreatment desulfurization agent for ships, will help overcome the IMO Sulfur Cap by maximizing the utilization of space on ships and minimizing the cost of desulfurization facilities.
