OSLO, NORWAY (May 9, 2023)
Ionada, a global leader in carbon capture technology, has announced its participation in the Green Shipping Programme, a public-private partnership, that aims to advance the Norwegian government’s maritime strategies and plans. The programme’s vision is to develop and strengthen Norway’s goal to establish the world’s most efficient and environmentally friendly shipping. As a participant in the program, Ionada will work to develop a pilot onboard carbon capture system for the maritime industry using its innovative membrane technology.
“We are excited to join the Green Shipping Programme and work alongside other industry leaders to promote sustainable shipping practices,” said Frode Helland-Evebø, Vice President Commercial of Ionada. “Our patented hollow fiber membrane technology has the potential to revolutionize the carbon capture industry, and we believe it can play a key role in reducing emissions from the maritime sector.”
Ionada has developed a patented modular membrane contactor carbon capture system for small to mid-size carbon emitters. Ionada’s unique carbon capture technology requires as little as 50% of the space and 30% of the power of conventional marine solution carbon capture systems, making it an economical solution for the marine and energy industry for CO2 reductions.
“We are delighted to welcome Ionada as a partner in the Carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems on-board vessels pilot. With its innovative carbon capture technology, Ionada will be a valuable addition to our group, and we look forward to working together towards a more sustainable future for the maritime industry,” said Narve Mjøs at Green Shipping Programme. “
The Green Shipping Program’s overall goal is to contribute to feasible solutions that ensure efficient and environmentally friendly shipping to achieve the national and international climate goals. More specifically, the goals are to achieve cost-effective emission reductions, economic growth, sustainable logistics solutions, increased competitiveness, and new jobs.
