Splash 247.com: K Line makes history with successful carbon capture at sea

„Carbon capture and storage at sea is now a thing following landmark trials onboard a Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) coal carrier. Tokyo-headquartered K Line has been carrying out trials of a new contraption it has installed on a ship on charter to Tohoku Electric Power, which it developed in association with Mitsubishi Shipbuilding and ClassNK. The captured CO2 had a purity of more than 99.9%, which allows it potentially to be used in a wide range of applications, including chemical processes to enhance production of fertilizer or methanol, general use such as dry ice for cooling, and enhanced oil recovery to increase crude oil production.“
