The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has voiced its support of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology and has recognized its importance on the road to achieving sustainability.
ABS is currently the global leader in offshore and gas carrier classification, which gives it a great opportunity to use its knowledge and expertise to support the exploration of this technology in the marine and offshore industries.
ABS Director of Global Sustainability, Georgios Plevrakis shared in a statement that ABS understands the crucial role that CCUS technology will have in value chain decarbonization and that it is one of the building blocks of the new carbon economics.
Furthermore, Plevrakis said that ABS is in a unique position to help promote the implementation and further development of CCUS. And it even has its own Low Carbon Shipping Outlook series to support this idea.
In addition, the American Bureau of Shipping Whitepaper: Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage elaborates on the potential that CCUS has, as well as on what opportunities there are for its effective utilizations. Separately, the whitepaper also speaks of the vessels that will be necessary to transport the liquefied carbon.
The sustainability whitepaper along with the Low Carbon Shipping Outlook are available for download on the page of the ABS Marine Sustainability Resource Center.
