BASF & Samsung Heavy Industries will carry out a collaborative feasibility assessment of capturing CO2 onboard maritime vessels using BASF’s OASE® blue technology for flue gas applications. Towards this end, both parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding for Onboard Carbon Capture and Storage technology at the trade show Gastech 2022 in Milan in Italy.The scope of the collaboration includes a marinization study as well as engineering design and construction of the carbon capture unit. BASF will support with its expertise on floating liquefied natural gas and with its well proven OASE blue technology contributing to sustainability by substantial energy savings compared with conventional technologies. SHI will evaluate the feasibility of installing the gas treatment technology onboard maritime vessels. The joint effort is in line with the strategy of the International Maritime Organization to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping by at least 40% by 2030.Taking place in Milan, Italy from September 5-8, 2022, Gastech is the world’s largest global exhibition and conference for technologies related to natural gas, liquefied natural gas, hydrogen, low carbon solutions and climate.
