K LINE operates world’s first vessel-based CO2 capture plant

Japanese shipping line Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (K LINE) has seen success with the first separation and capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the exhaust gas emitted from coal carrier ‘Corona Utiility’.

The vessel was installed with the onboard CO2 capture plant as part of the ‘CC-Ocean’ project as part of a joint project with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (Mitsubishi Shipbuilding) and Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (Class NK).

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding had experts operating and maintaining the plant in August 2021, in addition to teaching the ship’s crew how to operate, measure and analyse the captured CO2.

The CC-OCEAN project will continue to be researched and developed, along with other environmental load reduction technologies, according to K LINE’s Environmental Vision 2050.
