EXCLUSIVE: Yara expects marine Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipment market to reach US$120 million by 2022

Niels Tholen - 15 July 2014

Rolf Isberg, Vice President and Business Unit Manager at Yara International discussed the development of the AUS 40 market for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) applications in the marine sector at the 10th Integer Emissions Summit Europe 2014.

Isberg stated that Yara has supplied more than 1,200 SCR systems to more than 350 vessels. Yara expects the market for marine-SCR equipment to expand rapidly after 2018, reaching around US$120 million annually from 2022 onwards. However, the marine SCR market discussed above only includes new-built ships that will enter NOx Emission Control Areas (NECA), retrofits will only be applicable if local governments provide grant subsidies such as in Norway and Sweden.

The market for AUS 40 is currently dominated by small volumes, a complicated delivery mechanism and long distances, but Isberg described that this was normal for the early phase of market development.

North America will be the first NECA zone and is scheduled to come into force in 2016. In Europe, marine SCR / AUS 40 activity takes place in Scandinavia due to local government incentives.

From an AUS 40 quality perspective, recent developments have seen Japan withdrawing its initial comments on the ISO standards for AUS 40 which will now be finalised and rolled-out as a globalised framework.

The 10th Integer Emissions Summit Europe 2014 took place on 17-19 June at the Hilton Hotel Dusseldorf, Germany. Integer Research operates DiscoverDEF.com
