Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Clean energy created by waste treatment, decontamination of the fumes of maritime transport, the biggest polluter on the planet

How is the problem solved?

CO2-free technology

What is the customer target?

Municipalities, industries, states, small and medium-sized businesses, and large shipping vessels (clean-up of the liquids that wash the scrubbers and pure water will be discharged instead of water contaminated by the scrubbers).

How is this solution different?

Competitors do not go to the end of the processing chain, especially for WEEE that is sent back to China. Markco processes WEEE on site and recovers rare metals and all precious metals without CO2 emissions
