The Lee A Tregurtha has been outfitted with freshwater, closed-loop exhaust gas scrubbers. More specifically, DuPont Marine Scrubbers from BELCO. The scrubbers work to effectively strip the majority of sulfur and particulate matter from the ship’s stack emissions, reducing the environmental impact of the ship.
