World’s First OCCS System Conversion Project for Bulk Carriers was Signed

On Dec. 6th, the global first carbon capture system retrofit project for bulk carrier was officially signed in MARINTEC CHINA 2023 Watts Energy booth.

This signing ceremony marks a new beginning for the further cooperation between Watts Energy and Zhongtaihai Carbon on the carbon capture system retrofit of stock vessels. The first project is the retrofitting of a bulk carrier with onboard carbon capture and storage system.

Onboard Carbon Capture System (OCCS) is the application of carbon capture technology in CCUS to ships. It separates and captures CO₂ from the exhaust gas or fuel emitted by ships, and transports it to the destination for resource utilization or injects it into the seabed/strata for sequestration, preventing it from entering the atmosphere, so as to achieve a permanent reduction of CO₂ emitted by ships.

As a disruptive carbon emission reduction technology, OCCS offers the possibility for ships to realize substantial carbon emission reduction under the use of mature and low-cost traditional fossil fuels, and provides a feasible path for the green and low-carbon development of the shipping industry.
