Ionada GmbH completes a detailed onboard carbon capture feasibility study for LNG Carriers says Ionada.
- The feasibility study concludes onboard carbon capture is a viable solution to reduce carbon emissions and ensure EXXI and CII regulatory compliance.
- Ionada is a global climate technology company that develops, manufactures, and markets post-combustion carbon capture systems that reduce greenhouse gas emissions
IMO recently released a mandatory energy efficiency measure for ships, as part of their strategy to reduce the GHG emissions from shipping to at least 40% by 2030 — and working towards 70% reduction by 2050. CO2 reductions are a challenge that affects both ship owners who must meet the IMO and EU ETS requirements, and charters whose products and cargo are tagged with the emissions.
To meet the need for significant CO2 reductions head-on, one EU oil major has partnered with Ionada to produce a detailed feasibility study for the installation and operation of Ionada’s unique carbon capture technology. Requiring as little as 50% of the space, and 30% of the power of conventional marine solution carbon capture systems, the study shows how the feasibility of Lonada’s HFCM technology, will succeed in disrupting the current status of marine carbon capture.
The study is believed to be the first to include a detailed analysis of all aspects of the installation of the system including, installation, operation, draft implications, stability, onboard CO2 storage and discharge, and analyses of the actual CO2 reduction, from O/B capture to discharge. This feasibility study, together with Ionada’s extensive experience with our Class and Flag approved HFMC SOx scrubber and recent HFMC CO2 scrubber Approval in Principle from Bureau Veritas will be a huge step for shipowners to meet the necessary regulations required to continue operations of their vessels. The study concludes there is a significant economic benefit for onboard carbon capture and that the vessels can be fitted with onboard carbon capture without significant impact on operations or safety.
