EcoSoftec is a French independent company. It is dedicated to invent, design and produce exclusive technologies to upgrade the overall performances of large thermal systems, such as boilers, for instance those operated with liquid dirty fuels. The major benefit they afford is an improved combustion, with decisive impacts on the environmental, energetic and maintenance aspects, by means of catalysis effects.

In order to minimize the pollution and the consequent serious sanitary stakes due to the dangerous particles released in the exhaust gases of the vessels, particularly the ultra-fines ones, EcoSoftec develops “OCEAMm”. Alone, it makes a net contribution to abate these pollutants ; as a complement to any end of pipe treatment, such as scrubbers, it pushes upward their utility.

This entirely new solution is presented for the first time on the occasion of the European Environmental Ports Conference.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.


ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible.  In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, ACI will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
