EverLoNG Demonstrates First Onboard Carbon Capture


A ship-based carbon capture (SBCC) prototype developed under the EverLoNG project has been removed from an LNG-powered LNG carrier chartered by TotalEnergies following the end of the first demonstration campaign.

Ship-Based Carbon Capture

The carbon capture unit, built by Carbotreat in the Netherlands, was installed onboard Seapeak Arwa in September 2023 as part of a project led by the Dutch research and development organization TNO which aims to demonstrate ship-based carbon capture technology and capture CO2 from the ship’s exhaust.

On February 20, 2024, the project consortium shared an update stating that the EverLoNG SBCC demonstration plant was removed from the LNG carrier, signaling the end of the first test campaign.

As disclosed, during this test campaign, the demonstration plant captured 250 kilograms of CO2 per day from the ship’s propulsion engine whilst sailing around the world.

Reducing Emissions

The overarching objective of this initiative is to achieve a remarkable 70% reduction in CO2 emissions from ships, with a focus on vessels powered by LNG but not equipped with SBCC. Serving as the baseline comparison, the project aims to demonstrate the substantial impact of SBCC on emissions reduction.

The project involves a collaborative effort of 18 companies consisting of: TNO, Conoship International, VDL Carbon Capture, TotalEnergies, Heerema Marine Contractors, Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage, The University of Edinburgh, Anthony Veder, SINTEF, Bureau Veritas Group, Lloyd’s Register, Los Alamos National Laboratory, DNV, Nexant, Carbotreat, Bouman Industries, MAN Energy Solutions, and Forschungszentrum Jülich.
