Emission gases transformed into a valuable fertiliser

In December 2020, our CEO, Dr. Mario Michan was interviewed by 24heures, the most popular magazine in the region of Swiss Romandie. Dr. Michan explains how our unique innovation removes toxic pollutants and GHG emissions from the exhaust gas. Our core technology, a universal green converter, reduces emissions from all fuels, minimising both air- and sea pollution from the maritime industry.

While the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the maritime trade during 2020, the fact still remains that 90% of goods transit around the globe by sea transport. This traffic generates massive pollution. Since early 2020, the International Maritime Organization has been constraining the shipping industry to a drastic reduction of greenhouse gases. This new regulation has encouraged shipowners to change fuel, but it remains a costly process.

Our CEO and founder of Daphne Technology, Dr. Mario Michan, has developed a unique solution in our laboratory in Saint-Sulpice: convert toxic emissions released by ships into none hazardous components. Dr. Michan explains that the heart of our system is conversion: it's about converting electrical energy into chemical energy by finding the best energy efficiency. In the reactor chamber, a large number of electrons cause the oxidation of the pollutants, which fall into different parts and transform sulphur into ammonium sulphate, a fertiliser used in agriculture. Our CEO emphasizes that we can clean up the exhaust of all gases, but now there is one technology for each pollutant on the market. Therefore, Daphne's innovation is a breakthrough technology that treats the emissions of all fuels, including those of the future, such as ammonia, rich in hydrogen.
