Project REMARCCABLE (Realising Maritime Carbon Capture to demonstrate the Ability to Lower Emissions) is the world’s first project aimed to demonstrate end-to-end shipboard carbon capture at scale.

Presented by project leaders Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) project REMARCCABLE is supported by 23 Study Partners and 2 Observers. This includes Shell, Woodside Energy, Alfa Laval, Panasia, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, Port of Rotterdam Authority, Advario, Jurong Port, PSA, bp Shipping, BHP, BW Epic Kosan, Olympic Shipping, Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS), Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd (“K” Line), Hapag-Lloyd, Navigator Gas, Singapore Shipping Association (SSA), Pavilion Energy, Stena , Keppel Offshore & Marine*, SeaTech Solutions (S) Pte Ltd, Sembcorp Marine, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Emerson and Endress + Hauser Gard.

Although a lot of effort is going into the development of low and zero-carbon fuels, that development alone may not be fast enough to allow international shipping to meet IMO’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. Projections indicate that 85% of the fuel mix for two-stroke engines will remain fossil-fuel based by 2030 and 34% by 2050 . Shipboard carbon capture can help reduce GHG emissions of current vessels, with the possibility of recycling captured CO2 to produce alternative fuels.

GCMD has awarded its concept study on offloading liquefied CO2 (LCO2) captured onboard ships to Lloyd’s Register, supported by their partner Arup. The findings from this offloading study will inform the pilot in phase three of Project REMARCCABLE.

Project REMARCCABLE will be presented by Eng Kiong, Director, Research & Projects, Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation on Thursday 9th May in the Green Technologies Session.

An environmental engineer by training, he has 22 years of experience in business development and account management in the fields of research, product development, and technology business. He has had a variety of assignments spanning industries from speciality chemical, environment and maritime clean energy. He has intimate knowledge of the workings of the R&D business, having had the “triple helix” experience working in the industry, government, and academic institutions.
