Ionada secures Approval in Principle for onboard Carbon Capture

Hamburg, Germany (December 17, 2021)

Ionada GmbH (“Ionada”), is pleased to announce a breakthrough in marine decarbonization, as one of the first to obtain an Approval in Principle (AIP), for onboard carbon capture for the marine industry.

“Ionada’s key innovation, is the application of nano porous hollow fiber membrane contactor (HFMC) technology, to carbon capture. Resulting in a system that is 50% smaller, and 30% more efficient, than competitive conventional amine carbon capture systems,” says Edoardo Panziera, Managing Director at Ionada. “Ionada’s compact and modular marine carbon capture systems, can be easily retrofitted to marine vessels to help them achieve net zero carbon emissions.”

Panziera goes on to add… “Ionada will be ramping up commercialization of our carbon capture technology, with the support of Bureau Veritas within the next eighteen months. Providing ship owners a much-needed solution to achieve the mandated carbon emission reductions.”

Ionada is actively seeking forward-thinking shipowners and charters seeking to implement its innovative carbon capture systems. For further information please visit
