Net-zero marine gasoil (MGO) biofuel will play a key role in helping to achieve the new carbon emission reduction targets set by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). Marine gasoil (MGO) emits 3.22 tonnes of CO2 and equivalents per metric tonne, which can be significantly reduced by the blending of pure net-zero biofuel in varying increments, according to GAC.
A division of the GAC Group, GAC Bunker Fuels aims to achieve its carbon zero target by 2030.

The new system, which present being built in India, captures carbon with a specialized amine-based solvent in a rotating packed-bed reactor where gas streams containing CO2 are pumped through a contact chamber where the CO2 dissolves and reacts with the solvent. In a separate chamber, heat and vacuum pull the now-concentrated CO2 back out of the solvent. The solvent is then cooled and cycled back into the contact chamber.
In addition to the smaller footprint, Carbon Clean says its system will cost half as much to buy and run as custom-built tower-based systems.
