DSME in CCS development with Korean partner

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has announced success of a joint development of CO2 capture and storage device technology for ships with Hi Air Korea.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) has announced success of a joint development of CO2 capture and storage device technology for ships with Hi Air Korea.

In line with the drive for decarbonisation of shipping, DSME has said it has verified the technology of carbon dioxide capture and storage technology using the basic patent of DSME and the exhaust purification technology of Hi Air Korea, a domestic equipment and equipment company. DSME has already completed about 20 domestic and foreign patent applications related to the technology.

The CO2 capture and storage technology developed by DSME to respond proactively 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.

DSME says its carbon dioxide capture and storage technology is expected to provide new solutions to shipowners and to actively respond to environmental regulations, helping to strengthen future competitiveness.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Vice President Lee Sang-cheol in charge of ship design said, “Based on the successful technical verification of this carbon dioxide capture and storage technology, we will do our best to advance the commercialisation time. It is expected to dominate,” he said.
