Ecoxy conducts emissions measurement and verification, primarily for the maritime and offshore sectors. “We help companies to determine their environmental footprint and facilitate greener, more economical operations,” says Kristine Sørensen, Ecoxy’s Managing Director.
Today all companies must face the issue of their own environmental impact. They may need to comply with regulations and emissions standards to continue doing business, or they may feel compelled to respond to market demands for green products and services.
Whatever the reason, companies need a way to prove their level of emissions – to the authorities, to their customers and to society at large.
“It’s challenging for companies to achieve their emissions reduction targets without having quantitative data. They need reliable data on which to base their reduction strategies, but this is not easy to find,” says Sørensen.

Ecoxy conducts emissions measurement on diesel and gas engines, gas turbines and boilers. It also provides third-party verification of emissions levels. The instrumentation measures NOx ( NO + NO2), THC, CO, CO2, NH3 and O2 with 96 per cent accuracy.
Measurements are based on standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and methods defined by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
“We give companies the reliable data they need to be able to take action and reduce their emissions,” says Sørensen. “Once a company implements a modification, we can return to verify that their changes have had the intended effect.”
Ecoxy is accredited according to international recognized standards, providing the most accurate and reliable data available. “Our accreditations are Ecoxy’s stamp of quality. They are difficult to achieve. We work in a strict manner and are subject to annual audits,” she continues.
Ecoxy helps companies to improve their green profile, giving them a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Sørensen explains:
“More companies are seeking to achieve their own ESG goals, which will increase their business value. In addition, banks, insurance companies, shareholders and customers are demanding that companies improve their environmental footprint. In some cases, the ‘greener’ the company, the more competitive it is.”
Companies can therefore use emissions data to document their climate progress, not only for regulatory authorities but for a wide range of actors. “In the big picture, we are part of a collaborative effort to slow climate change and improve air quality,” she adds.
The EU aims to reduce GHG emissions by 55 per cent by 2030, setting Europe on a path to become climate-neutral by 2050. International bodies, such as the IMO, and individual countries have their own strict emissions standards.
“The market for our services is vast, as companies with diesel and gas engines, gas turbines and boilers should comply with the climate regulations going forward,” says Sørensen.
While Ecoxy has traditionally focused on marine-based activities, it also works with land-based industries where nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) are of concern. The company seeks to expand its presence in Europe first, but it has received orders from Asian customers as well.
“Since 2007, Ecoxy has evolved from a regional technical service to a global environmental impact company,” concludes Sørensen.
