CIMAC Guidelines on Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) and the current marine piloting projects

Hello QueSeanians,

Let me share hereby an intresting white paper by CIMAC about the CCUS – Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage.

This white paper includes the current piloting plans in the maritime industry.

  • Wärtsilä is developing a solvent-based carbon capture system to fit into funnel casing for commercial shipping

  • Alfa Laval has executed a CCS test with Japan’s National Maritime Research Institute (NMRI) in the lab. The tests showed that a scrubber, the modified PureSOx system, could perform the CO2 capture from the auxiliary diesel engines in port, while operating in a closed loop.

  • Samsung Heavy Industries received an approval in principle (AIP) from the Korean Register of Shipping about the onboard CCS developed together with Panasia for LNG fulled vessels.

  • Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) obtained a basic approval for a liquified carbon dioxide carrier from ABS. The vessel will have LNG propulsion engine and a carbon dioxide capture unit using ammonia-water sorbent and mineral carbonation technology developed by Hi Air Korea.

  • Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is piloting their CCS solution together with K-line and Class NK.

  • Value Maritime introduced a concept of exhaust gas “filtration” for engine sizes of 3-15 MW, where SOx, particulates and CO2 are captured.
