Stena Bulk is participating in a project with the Singapore-based Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) and Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) to demonstrate shipboard carbon capture at scale.

The two-year investigation into the challenges and opportunities of deploying carbon capture technology on ships will trial on-board capture, storage and off-loading of carbon dioxide (CO2).

It will target at least a 30% capture rate on a Stena Bulk MR tanker, equivalent to about 1,000 kg per hour of carbon.
