Maritime carbon capture project wins €3.4m EU funding

A project to develop carbon capture systems for ships has won 3.4 million euros of the financing of the European Union.

the EverLoNG project will demonstrate carbon capture systems onboard two LNG-powered vessels owned and operated by TotalEnergies and Marine Contractors Heeremathe organization said in an emailed statement on Wednesday.

The project will aim for a marginal abatement cost of €75-100 per tonne of CO2 equivalentwith a CO2 capture rate of up to 90%.

“Our demonstration campaigns will optimize the SBCC technology and we will also look at how best to integrate it into existing ship and port infrastructure,” Marco Linders of NWTone of the EverLoNG project coordinators, said in the statement.

“We will also carry out detailed life cycle analyzes and technical-economic analyses, which will be essential information for companies in the maritime sector.

“International collaboration is a big part of EverLoNG and our consortium is fully committed to supporting the shipping industry’s decarbonization goals.”
