Ship Based Carbon Capture

Carbon neutral cycle ♻️

This picture shows how we envision carbon reduction for the shipping industry.

The captured CO2 is stored on the vessel in a tank. In port the CO2 is transfered from the vessel to an onshore storage facility. From here the CO2 is transferred to a plant where synthetic fuel is produced.

Hydrogen from green energy (sun or wind) is combined with the captured CO2 into a new synthetic fuel. The synthetic fuel can be used in any application, for example the maritime, aviation or transport industry.

In this way, carbon emitted by the vessel is completely re-used and therefore the vessel can be labeled as carbon neutral.


Working principle

  1. Cooling & cleaning | Exhaust gas is cooled and cleaned inside, reducing particulate matter and temperature (optional: SOx).

  2. CO2 Scrubber | Exhaust gas is brought into contact with a solvent, dissolving up to 90% CO2 from the exhaust gas which leaves via the top of the funnel.

  3. CO2 Stripper | The solvent is heated, releasing the CO2, after which the solvent is re-used in a closed loop system.

  4. CO2 Tank | The CO2 is liquefied and stored in a tank. To do this, the CO2 is pressurized and cooled, using compressors and cooling units.
