Although shipping is by far the most carbon efficient mode of commercial transport, greenhouse gas
emissions from shipping are estimated to be about 3 % of total global emissions and at the moment are
predicted to increase by between 50 % and 250 % in 2050.
In order to make a fair contribution of shipping to the global reduction of CO2 emissions, new and innovative
technologies and logistics concepts must be developed and implemented. CO2 capture andstorage
on board ships is one way of significantly reducing a ship‘s carbon footprint. This procedure is already
in use in a land-based context. The challenge lies in the transferability of land-based CO2 capture and
storage solutions on board ships.
