LR AiP for Daphne Know-how’s Plasma-Catalysis System

Daphne Know-how’s progressive SlipPure™ system has been awarded Approval in Precept (AiP) by Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its Plasma-Catalytic expertise. The answer improves effectivity by reducing plasma energy consumption, enabling very excessive methane slip reductions at exhaust temperatures nicely under these required for catalyst-only options.

The superior SlipPure™ system, which beforehand obtained AiP for its plasma-only configuration, now runs its full Plasma-Catalytic course of and has undergone a number of rigorous take a look at campaigns, utilising exhaust fuel produced from a land-based take a look at engine (746kW lean burn spark ignited engine sort RR MTU 8V4000M55RN) put in on the Maritime Middle of the College of Utilized Science in Flensburg, Germany.

Methane slip is a significant contributor to greenhouse fuel emissions, with a worldwide warming potential 28 instances higher than that of CO2 over a 100-year interval.

In January 2023, protected operation of the WPP energy provide within the plasma-only system was demonstrated over almost 75 hours of operation. Earlier this yr, the Plasma-Catalytic course of was evaluated over almost 100 hours of operation, and LR witnessed 4.0 g/kWh elimination of methane slip (62% methane slip discount at 75% load) from exhaust fuel with temperatures as little as 380 °C.

“We’re once more very honoured to be working carefully with Lloyd’s Register and delighted to obtain this AiP,” mentioned Dr Mario Michan, CEO and Founder of Daphne Know-how. “This approval in precept validates our progressive strategy, and the witnessed outcomes are a testomony to the efficacy and reliability of our SlipPure™ system. The efficiency outcomes show our expertise’s readiness for market deployment and its influence on lowering methane emissions.”

Panos Mitrou, Lloyd´s Register International Fuel Section Director, mentioned: “LR has been working with Daphne Know-how for a number of years and following current testing, it’s clear that its Plasma-Catalytic expertise is shifting the bar in serving to corporations to meaningfully mitigate methane slip within the maritime and land-based oil and fuel industries.
