Last year, CPGC and BASF conducted technical trials of a carbon capture and storage system (OCCS) in a pilot plant. The test results are approved by ship classification societies such as the US Bureau Shipping, Bureau Veritas and Nippon Kaiji Kyokai. The use of OCCS on ships is another important milestone for the partners. The two companies are currently working on optimizing the special design of the OCCS module based on real ship conditions to enable commercial applications for different ship types. Among other things, the Chinese company wants to use the technology in LNG carriers.

“We are pleased to deepen our cooperation with CPGC, which has expertise in the R&D, manufacturing and supply of marine engines and propulsion systems. By leveraging BASF’s expertise in gas processing, we aim to address the challenges of improving energy efficiency and reducing emissions in the marine sector to meet the growing demand for Carbon from shipping. BASF.
