K LINE has joined the Global CCS Institute (GCCSI), in an attempt to advance worldwide deployment of CCS (Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage) technology.
LINE is promoting CCS-related businesses, as in the demonstration test of an onboard CO2 capture system, K LINE successfully separated and captured CO2 from the exhaust gas emitted from the vessel for the first time in the world.
In addition, K LINE is participating the demonstration project on CO2 ship transportation by New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization and conducting research and development that will contribute to the long-distance and large-scale transportation of CO2 in the future.
The liquefied CO2 carrier for the demonstration test is being built as the world’s first demonstration vessel for the CCUS project, and K LINE is participating in the development of CO2 shipping technology.
GCCSI was established by the Australian government in 2009 to promote the use of CCS technology worldwide, and currently has members from all over the world, including government, industries, and research organizations. GCCSI conducts surveys on the latest trends in CCS business and technology and holds subcommittee meetings to discuss the launch of international CCS projects in the future.
“K” LINE will keep abreast of the international CCS development and will accelerate its consideration of participation in CCS related business by joining GCCSI. We will continue to contribute to the realization of a carbon neutral society based on the “K” LINE Environmental Vision 2050
