DSME has already completed about 20 domestic and foreign patent applications related to the technology, which uses a wet capture process and mineral carbonation technology to collect and store carbon dioxide using ammonia water.

“Based on the successful technical verification of this carbon dioxide capture and storage technology, we will do our best to advance the commercialisation time,” stated DSME Vice President of Ship Design Lee Sang-cheol.

DSME, meanwhile, is developing various technologies such as a 23,000 TEU ammonia-powered container ship, a VLCC powered by solid oxide fuel cells, and next-generation eco-friendly auxiliary propulsion technologies such as the rotor sail system.

The company plans to concentrate its efforts on the development of eco-friendly new technologies, such as developing a liquid hydrogen storage tank in anticipation of the hydrogen era.
