Japanese Research Demonstrates Carbon Capture Using Scrubbers

A first-of-its-kind test aboard a newly built ship demonstrated the feasibility of carbon capture and storage on an actual vessel. The successful demonstration is a key step in the development of CCS, which is viewed as a potential bridge technology to address decarbonization efforts to reduce harmful CO2 emissions from the world’s fleet.

Turkey bans open-loop scrubbers

According to the recent circular of the Turkish Chamber of Shipping, it is prohibited to discharge washwater from scrubbers into the sea in the territorial waters of the country.
