The Singapore-based Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) is launching a study that will evaluate the safety, technical and operational requirements for offloading shipboard captured liquified carbon dioxide (LCO2) during port calls.

It said the outcomes of this study will enable the offloading of LCO2 from shipboard capture systems.

“To accelerate the implementation of shipboard carbon capture and to enable the piloting phase of Project REMARCCABLE, GCMD is issuing an Invitation for Proposal to study how best to offload captured CO2 in the form of LCO2 to shortlisted engineering consultants and classification societies,” GCMD said in a media statement on Tuesday.
