        日本航运巨头商船三井(Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, 简称MOL)决定投资挪威船舶管理公司——拉尔维克航运(Larvik Shipping)以进行液态二氧化碳运输。
        作为把碳收集地(collection sites)和封存地、利用地(storage or usage sites)连接起来的有效手段,二氧化碳运输是碳捕获、利用与封存(carbon dioxide capture utilization and storage, 缩写CCUS)价值链的中心环节。
        拉尔维克航运(Larvik Shipping)是目前全球少数几家有资质运营液态二氧化碳运输船的公司之一,可运输食品级二氧化碳,这也将是该公司未来的业务重点。食品级二氧化碳主要用于医院、啤酒厂和食品行业。
        拉尔维克航运(Larvik Shipping)在声明中表示:“两家公司在业务领域的强强联合可为全球CCUS项目提供很大帮助。”
MOL makes foray into ocean transport of liquefied CO2
Japanese shipping heavyweight Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has decided to invest into Larvik Shipping, a Norwegian ship management company for liquified CO2 carriers.
The investment marks MOL’s entrance into a completely new market of ocean transportation of liquefied CO2.
The business sector plays a central role in carbon dioxide capture utilization and storage (CCUS) value chains as a means of connecting collection sites with storage or usage sites.
Larvik Shipping is one of very few companies in the world qualified to operate liquified CO2 vessels for food grade CO2, which will continue to be the company’s focus moving forward. Food Grade CO2 is used mainly by hospitals, breweries, and the food industry.
“The combination of the expertise of the two companies will enable them to contribute to carbon dioxide capture utilization and storage (CCUS) projects around the world,” Larvik Shipping said in a statement.
CO2 carbon capture and storage is starting to spark considerable interest as a step toward realizing a low-carbon society.
As part of the cooperation, the two companies will discuss the adoption of larger ships with an eye toward expanding both upstream and downstream and in the CCUS value chain.
The investment is part of MOL’s Rolling Plan 2020 management plan aimed at contributing to the achievement of a decarbonized society.
As part of its increased focus on sustainability in 2021, MOL is launching a dedicated division to plan and promote the company’s environmental and sustainability strategies in April.
