JR Shipping retrofits another container feeder vessel with filter and carbon capture system

28 Mar 2022

Value Maritime, solutions provider of the Filtree System and CO₂ Capture and Storage solution, on Tuesday (22 march) said it has signed another agreement with JR Shipping for the further decarbonisation of their fleet.

The filter and carbon capture system will be now be installed on JR Shipping’s container feeder vessel MV Energy, in addition to MV Endeavor.

The JR Shipping Group is following two tracks towards decarbonisation, according to Value Maritime.

On the one hand, the shipping company recently launched its ECO Feeder newbuilding programme and is preparing for the future transition to clean and new fuel applications.

The second track that the JR Shipping Group is focusing on is making existing vessels more sustainable; container feeder vessels Endeavor and Energy are the first.

Major advantages for Value Maritime’s filter and carbon capture system are as follows:

  • Full compliance with sulphur emission regulations while still operating on cost-efficient fuel.
  • In addition to sulphur, particulate matter is also filtered from the exhaust gases, which provides an additional environmental benefit.
  • CO₂ is stored and re-used with the capture and storage module, which reduces the vessel’s ecological footprint.

“The JR Shipping Group and Value Maritime will continue to cooperate to capitalise on any opportunity that arise – no matter how small – to contribute to less pollution in shipping activities,” it says.
