The effect of global warming in our environment is significant. The largest greenhouse gas (GHG) contributor is Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Maritime transport emits around 940 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually and is responsible for about 2.5% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (IMO, 2014).
Due to the threat of climate change also the demand for maritime CO2 emission reduction has strongly increased. This is backed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) who came up with the ambitious goal to reduce CO2 from shipping by 40% by 2030 and 70% by 2050 per transport work (IMO, 2018).
Carbon Capture and Storage has been gaining recognition as an important technology towards decarbonizing shipping (DNV 2050 Maritime forecast).
