Particulate matter emissions from shipping affect air quality in port areas. Physical removal of particulate matter is difficult due to the small size of particles. In this article the so-catted Steam Jet Aerosol Collector (SJAC) is introduced; a novel technique to enlarge particulate matter, facilitating its physical removal. Results are presented from experiments conducted on a pilot-scale test facility, The SjAC-technology shows potential in combination with a cyclone having a maximum number removal efficiency of 33%, as measured with an SPIPS and a maximum mass removal efficiency of 24%, as measured with an absolute filter at 110°C {383K). Further system development is however necessary.
