Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. (DSME) developed a technology to store carbon dioxide captured in ship engine emissions.
he technology developed in cooperation with a local ship part supplier, HI AIR Korea Co., will help ships in operation reduce their carbon dioxide emissions to brace for environment regulations by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), DSME said.
As informed, the CO2 capture and storage technology developed by DSME to preemptively respond to stringent environmental regulations is an innovative reduction technology that can prepare for the carbon-neutral era in 2050.
With the wet capture process and mineral carbonation technology that collects and stores a large amount of carbon dioxide using ammonia water, the amount of carbon dioxide absorption can be designed in various ways depending on the size of the device.
To remind, the IMO aims to cut carbon dioxide emissions from international shipping by more than 30 percent by 2025 and by at least 50 percent by 2050, compared with 2008.
DSME also said it will commercialize the technology as soon as possible as demand for eco-friendly ships has been increasing in recent years.
