Deal with a Chinese company to install the system on a ship

MSC pioneers C02 capture technology

by Port News Editorial Staff

Mediterranean Shipping Co (MSC) is pioneering carbon capture and storage technology. The world’s largest shipping company is to have an innovative carbon capture and utilisation system (CCUS) fitted on board one of its containerships, probably the 23,756 TEU MSC Mia.

The technology is provided by the Chinese company Zhejiang Energy Marine Environmental Technology (ZEME) and is expected to capture 40% of carbon emissions from the vessel’s exhaust.

The total cost of the CCUS installation is $8.92 million which includes $7 million in equipment costs, $69,000 for the cost of the amine carbon absorbing chemical, and $1.85 million in site installation costs for up to 45 working days.
