D3.2.1 Cold recovery System as part of SBCC Solution on LNG-driven ships
This publication presents some of the findings from the third work package (WP3) of the research project EverLoNG, which aims to expedite the adoption of ship-based carbon capture technology on commercial vessels. The EverLoNG project is part of the Accelerating CCS Technologies (ACT) program, which seeks to promote the emergence of CCUS through transnational funding, targeted research, and innovation. The EverLoNG project is supported by several organizations, including the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (Germany), the Research Council of Norway, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (Netherlands), the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (UK), and the U.S. Department of Energy, all of whom have provided funding for this project.
There is growing interest in ship-based carbon capture (SBCC) as route to decarbonisation of global shipping fleets. This leads to the need for the development of an international CO2 shipping network, and hence interoperability between regions.
The EverLoNG project aims to set up a CO2 Shipping Interoperability Group (CSIG) to review and discuss the barriers and drivers to achieving this international interoperability. Three workshops will be run over the duration of the EverLoNG project, looking at the learning from the transport of other liquified gases, especially LNG and LPG, the role of international standards and regulation, and techno-economic requirements.
This report has been prepared to meet the requirements of EverLoNG project deliverables D5.1.1 and D5.1.3 and consists of three main sections: Identify applicable safety and environmental standards and codes / Major hazard of CO2 loss of containment / Assessment of technology novelty.
