Yara Marine Technologies delivers complete emission control systems for SOx cleaning to the marine segment.
The company was established in 2014 following the acquisition of Green Tech Marine, by global industrial chemical corporation Yara International ASA.

Green Tech Marine has since its origin in 2010 been a forerunner in the emission reduction technology industry being the first company offering the inline SOx scrubber to the marine segment. Yara Marine Technologies was also the first company to introduce the multi-engine inlet and the flexible mini scrubber that both drastically reduces the design footprint on the vessel.

With more than 300 scrubber systems delivered and millions of successful operating hours, the company has an impressive amount of experience in the marine exhaust gas cleaning industry, delivering scrubbers to all the major marine segments from cargo to passenger vessels.

Regardless of vessel and engine type, Yara Marine can deliver the best solution to your SOx abatement needs for reliable and cost-efficient IMO compliance.

Yara Marine Technologies has offices in China and Sweden, and the Headquarter is located in Norway.

We welcome the new legal requirement for stricter environmental regulations. Over the next years, thousands of ships worldwide will need new equipment to meet the latest IMO emissions regulations.
