Could carbon dioxide be one of the next big commodities shipped across the seas? Enormous sums are being spent into research and development to make carbon capture and storage (CCS) a reality for shipping, not just onboard but also taking pollution from the land for burial deep down under the ocean floor.
The November issue of Splash Extra takes an in-depth look at this nascent technology with interviews from many of the pioneers in the sector including K Line, Stena Bulk and Henrik Madsen, the former head of DNV GL, who is now chairman of the decarbonICE project, developed with the Denmark-based Maritime Development Center and a host of top shipping names.
CO2 as a commodity could well be a new cargo to transport going forward
“CO2 as a commodity could well be a new cargo to transport going forward,” Erik Hånell, CEO of Stena Bulk, told Splash Extra, while a number of experts discuss the design hurdles that need to be overcome to make this commodity a mainstream shipping segment.
Elsewhere in the subscription title, priced for as little as $200 a year, there is a look at the annual newbuild delivery slippage rate – ships that are meant to deliver this year but get shunted over to next year – with some surprising findings gathered from an exclusive Splash Extra survey.
The monthly title features regular market commentary, the best of November’s analyst commentary as well as a review of the key news from what has been a busy 25 days in shipping.
