Wärtsilä Explores Carbon Capture and Storage

Wartsila

Wärtsilä Exhaust Treatment highlights the potential for exhaust gas abatement systems to directly tackle maritime carbon dioxide emissions in the near future, as technology advances and enables manufacturers to design and upgrade scrubbers to capture carbon at the point of exhaust.

Wärtsilä has conducted extensive research and development to explore how carbon capture and storage (CCS) can be developed and scaled in maritime. Initial findings show that CCS on ships is technically viable for the sector to pursue. To further accelerate development, Wärtsilä is installing a 1-MW pilot plant at its test facility in Moss, Norway. This pilot plant will allow Wärtsilä to test its CCS technologies in a range of scenarios and conditions.

Carbon capture and storage, enabled by scrubbers, can take a central role within the suite of solutions helping to drive decarbonization in shipping, including alternative fuels and efficiency technologies. The sector must innovate broadly across multiple areas to mitigate the industry’s environmental impact.
