THE MARITIME EXECUTIVE | Nine Japanese companies have started the Ship Carbon Recycling Working Group as part of Japan's Carbon Capture & Reuse (CCR) Study Group. The Working Group aims to explore the feasibility of the concept of utilizing methanation technology for zero-emission ship fuels. Carbon recycling, a method used to capture and reuse emitted carbon dioxide, is attracting attention as one of the paths to achieve decarbonization.
Methanation is a technology for synthesizing methane gas by causing a chemical reaction between hydrogen and CO2. According to the group, fuel methanation is gathering attention as a technology for the realization of the IMO’s goals of eliminating GHG emissions.
