DNV AiP For ERMA FIRST’s On Board CCS System


Source: Erma First

DNV has awarded Approval in Principle (AiP) to an amine absorption-based Onboard Carbon Capture (OCC) system developed by ERMA FIRST. 

The AiP was issued by DNV following the successful completion of a technical review, risk assessment and review of the company’s feasibility study for Onboard Carbon Capture (OCC) on RoRo vessels.

The ERMA FIRST CCS system uses amine absorption technology and a proprietary amine solvent to absorb CO2 from flue gases. When heated, the chemical reaction that occurs reverses the absorption and separates the CO2 from the solvent. The CO2 that is released is subsequently liquified and stored under cryogenic conditions onboard while the regenerated solvent can be re-used, creating a highly efficient regenerative OCC process.
