Samsung Engineering inks deal with UK firm to develop maritime CCS solution
International engineering group, Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. (SECL), has signed a deal to collaborate with Carbon Clean, a UK-based point source carbon capture specialist, on the application and optimisation of its carbon capture technologies for onboard maritime applications.
Onboard carbon capture is expected to play a vital role in tackling emissions from shipping in the mid-term by enabling ships to capture the CO2 they emit while operating - plugging the gap while low-carbon fuels, such as green ammonia, methanol and hydrogen, and the associated onshore infrastructure, are developed and scaled up.
The JDA will focus on optimising Carbon Clean’s breakthrough modular carbon capture technology, CycloneCC, for use onboard ships. With equipment that is ten times smaller than a conventional carbon capture unit and a 50% smaller footprint, CycloneCC is well suited to the marine environment where space is extremely limited.
