As the leader in offshore and gas carrier classification globally, we are leveraging our knowledge and insights to support the marine and offshore industries as they explore carbon capture, utilization and storage. Let us assist you today.
Climate change has taken center stage globally. Requirements are constantly emerging from regulatory bodies, financial institutions as well as several other organizations, driving companies to not only account for their carbon footprint but to also find ways to reduce it. One of the methods that many companies are exploring is carbon capture, utilization and storage.
CCUS is the process by which CO2 can be captured, cleaned, dehydrated, liquefied, transported and either utilized or be stored at a final location.
To reach the IMO’s 2030 and 2050 emissions reduction targets, shipboard carbon capture is currently being explored. In order for CO2 to be captured onboard, additional elements needs to be installed including a CO2 capturing unit, storage tanks and piping systems as well as a component with the capability to liquify the CO2 for transportation.
