Marine group issues invitation to study best liquefied CO2 offload practices


The Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) has issued an Invitation-for-Proposal (IFP) to evaluate the safety, technical and operational requirements for offloading shipboard captured carbon dioxide (CO2) during port calls.

Announced today in Singapore (5th Dec), the study and its results will then be used to enable the most effective methods of offloading liquefied CO2 (LCO2) from shipboard capture systems.

The announcement comes two months after the launch of Project REMARCCABLE (Realising Maritime Carbon Capture to demonstrate the Ability to Lower Emissions) – an initiative by GCMD, the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) and Stena Bulk that aims to demonstrate end-to-end shipboard carbon capture at scale.

The project leaders were then joined by Alfa Laval, ABS, Deltamarin and TNO to form a consortium for a two-year, three-phase investigation into on-board capture and storage including the offloading of capture CO2 and its associated challenges.
