Samsung Engineering partners with Carbon Clean

Samsung Engineering Co., Ltd. (SECL) and Carbon Clean have signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) to explore opportunities for Onboard Carbon Capture solutions (OCCS) projects.

According to Samsung Engineering, the onboard carbon capture is expected to play a vital role in tackling emissions from shipping in the mid-term by enabling ships to capture the CO2 they emit while operating - plugging the gap while low-carbon fuels, such as green ammonia, methanol and hydrogen, and the associated onshore infrastructure, are developed and scaled up.

In particular, the JDA is going to focus on optimising Carbon Clean’s breakthrough modular carbon capture technology, CycloneCC, for use onboard ships.

Therefore, with equipment that is ten times smaller than a conventional carbon capture unit and a 50% smaller footprint, CycloneCC is well suited to the marine environment where space is extremely limited.

Aniruddha Sharma, chair and CEO of Carbon Clean, said, "Accounting for 3% of global CO2 emissions, decarbonising the shipping industry plays a significant role in the net zero puzzle. I look forward to our partnership with Samsung Engineering to offer carbon capture onboard ships. Carbon Clean’s breakthrough modular carbon capture technology, CycloneCC, is ideally suited for use on ships given its 10 times equipment size reduction and high performance."

Also, there is growing pressure to decarbonise shipping, given the enhanced emissions targets set earlier this year by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

SECL and Carbon Clean signed the JDA at an official signing ceremony on 3 October at the 2023 Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC).
