CSSC Power (Group) Corporation Limited (CPGC), a subsidiary of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), has announced its decision to implement BASF’s OASE blue gas treatment technology in the onboard carbon capture system (OCCS) of multiple liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers. The OCCS, utilizing BASF’s OASE blue technology, aims to support the low-carbon transformation and sustainable development of the shipping industry. The framework agreement for the actual ship application of the OCCS was signed at the 2024 Shanghai International Carbon Neutrality Expo in Technologies, Products and Achievements, marking a significant milestone in the partnership between CPGC and BASF.

CPGC and BASF are currently working on optimizing the design of the OCCS unit for different types of ships, based on actual ship conditions. Technical performance tests on the system prototype have been conducted over the past year, with validation from marine classification societies including the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Bureau Veritas (BV), and Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK). The collaboration between CPGC and BASF aims to address greenhouse gas emissions in the shipping industry and promote low-carbon shipping through innovative technologies.

Chen Haifeng, General Manager of the Environmental Protection Business Department at CPGC, emphasized the proactive stance of the company in promoting low-carbon development in the shipping industry. Michael Becker, Senior Vice President of Intermediates Asia Pacific at BASF, expressed satisfaction in deepening the cooperation with CPGC, highlighting the combined expertise in addressing energy efficiency and emission reduction challenges in the maritime sector to meet the increasing demand for maritime decarbonization.
