Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line), Nippon Gas Line Co., Ltd. and Ochanomizu University will participate in the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) project.
amely, the “CCUS R&D and Demonstration Related Project” will promote the development for social implementation of liquified CO2 maritime transportation.
CCUS (Carbon dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage) is a technology that can capture, effectively utilize and store the CO2 emissions from fossil power generation and industrial processes.
K” LINE has a long history and diversified track-record in ownership and technical management of liquefied gas carriers. Utilizing our expertise in liquefied gas (LNG/LPG) transportation business and know-how accumulated over many years, we are committed to the safe operation of liquefied gas carriers and professional handling of liquefied gas cargoes.
….K Line added.
As explained, CCUS is expected to play a key role in contributing to the achievement of Carbon Neutrality by 2050.
Therefore, “K” LINE, NGL, Ochanomizu University and ENAA will jointly develop technologies for liquefied CO2 marine transportation and contribute to the realization of longdistance / large-scale CO2 transportation enabling cost reduction through the development of CCUS technology in the demonstration project.
