SOx Sulfur Oxides

... a general term used to describe the oxides of sulfur. This pungent, colorless gases are formed primarily by the combustion of fossil fuels and are considered as major air pollutants. SOx may damage the respiratory tract as well as vegetation.

The first method of Gas Scrubbing was invented already in 1879 by Robert Hasenclever. Since then more than 100 techniques where developed. Some fade out secretly and quietly whereas others disapeared with a big bang.

All so far known methods have important disadvantages e. g. high energy demand, heavy weight, fouling problems etc.. Our recent findings convinced us to continue developing our new technology which will be tested in the near future with a pilot in our engine laboratory under real conditions.
