The agreement involves the joint development of onboard carbon capture solutions for ships using the Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ (CCC) technology developed by Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES) which was acquired by Chart in December 2020. The SES patented technology, which utilizes Chart's expertise in cryogenic equipment and systems, will separate the CO2 from the ships' exhaust gases, resulting in a high purity liquid CO2 product that is stored onboard in cryogenic storage tanks to be either permanently stored in underground geological formations or be used in CO2 -- consuming industries.
When fully developed, the carbon capture solution will be available as a key element in the TECO 2030 Future Funnel, an exhaust gas cleaning system for ships. TECO 2030 is also developing hydrogen fuel cells for the maritime industry. These will enable ships to switch from fossil fuels to green hydrogen produced by renewable energy and thereby emissions-free.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce carbon intensity in international shipping by 40 pct by 2030, and to cut the total annual greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by at least 50 pct by 2050 compared to 2008.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the supply of liquid CO2 has been significantly disrupted in California and throughout the United States as ethanol production plants have decreased production rates.

The DecarbonICE concept captures ship exhaust CO2 and other GHGs in a cryogenic process and turns it into dry ice. Proven offshore technology is then applied during normal ship operations to transport the dry ice into the seafloor sediments for permanent sequestration as liquid CO2 and CO2 hydrate.
In combination with future carbon neutral fuels like biofuels and electro fuels, the DecarbonICE technology can create carbon negative shipping and thus contribute to atmospheric carbon reduction at a significantly lower cost than shore-based CCS. capture.
The shipping industry is looking for carbon free solutions to achieve the IMO 2050 target of a 50 pct CO2 emissions reduction compared to the 2008 level.
