Carbon emissions from international shipping are expected to rise significantly if mitigation measures are not put in place soon. By demonstrating ship-based carbon capture (SBCC) on board commercial shipping, EverLoNG will take the technology through its paces, from TRL4 to TRL7, and speed its deployment by the maritime sector. We seek to close knowledge gaps and tackle both the technical and economic challenges of SBCC.

objectives and outcomes lighthouse

Our ten-point SBCC checklist

  • Develop strategies for reducing shipping’s CO2 emissions by at least 70%
  • Demonstrate effectiveness of SBCC on LNG-fuelled ships, comparing Life Cycle Assessment results against operation without the technology
  • Evaluate impact of SBCC on ship infrastructure, stability and safety to guarantee technical feasibility of SBCC technology
  • Demonstrate emission reduction potential of SBCC according to energy efficiency and design guidelines (EEDI and EEXI)
  • Identify any major safety hazards associated with SBCC and highlight safeguards
  • Improve cost effectiveness of SBCC with CO2 capture and onboard storage costs below €100 per tonne by 2025 and €50 per tonne for follow-on developments
  • Evaluate cost of offloading, transport, utilisation and/or storage in different CCUS chains
  • Develop offloading strategies that guide onboard post-treatment of CO2 and port infrastructure requirements.
  • Establish a CO2 Shipping Interoperability Industry Group (CSIIG) and develop a scale for evaluating port CCUS readiness levels
  • Propose a Roadmap for a European offloading network
