Houlder, a London-based design & engineering consultancy for the marine, energy and defence markets, has commenced work in partnership with PMW Technology on a study to evaluate the potential marine applications of carbon capture technology.
PMW Technology is among the latest organisations to receive funding from the UK Government’s Department for Transport’s Transport-Technology Research Innovation Grant (T-TRIG).
Awarded in March 2020, the funding is for a six month project to evaluate the feasibility, costs, infrastructure, impacts, and potential benefits of using advanced carbon capture technology to decarbonise marine shipping.
As explained, the organisation’s A3C carbon capture process is designed to extract carbon dioxide from marine exhaust gases by freezing, then subliming the carbon dioxide. It is then liquified and stored in dedicated tanks onboard, allowing for carbon capture from vessel emissions without radical technical overhauls of marine engines and fuels.
Houlder said it consults on key variables within the study to assess the operational viability of the technology and its potential application for shipping.
“We’re pleased to be working with PMW Technology and its partners on this study and look forward to sharing our learnings upon its completion, for the benefit of all of those transforming industries that stand to benefit from advancements in carbon capture,” Rupert Hare, CEO of Houlder, commented . . . . .
