BASF and Samsung Heavy Industries collaborate on carbon capture and storage for marine vessels
● Support the IMO carbon reduction goal of reducing the carbon intensity of international shipping by at least 40% by 2030
● BASF’s OASE® blue technology contributes to sustainability and cost savings in the capture of carbon dioxide from flue gas
● Samsung Heavy Industries will evaluate the feasibility of installing gas treatment technology on marine vessels
On September 13, 2022, BASF and Samsung Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (Samsung Heavy Industries) will apply BASF’s flue gas OASE®
blue processing technology to jointly carry out a feasibility assessment of carbon capture for marine vessels. At Gastech 2022 in Milan, Italy, the two parties signed a memorandum of understanding on “Carbon Capture and Storage” (OCCS) technology.
The collaboration involves shipping research and the engineering and construction of carbon capture devices. BASF will provide expertise in the field of floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG), as well as commercially proven OASE
Compared with traditional technology, blue process technology can save a lot of energy and contribute to sustainable development. Samsung Heavy Industries will evaluate the feasibility of retrofitting gas treatment technology on marine vessels. This cooperation is in line with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) strategy to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping by at least 40% by 2030.
