How can dry ice fix shippings environmental problem? 

MDC's new project platform decarbonICE has just seen the light of day, and has the ultimate goal of implementing an innovative Maritime Carbon Capture and Storage solution. We call it decarbonICE. It will enable the shipping industry to drastically reduce the overall CO2 emission for ocean shipping.

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, actually we are utilising existing and well proven technologies in a before unseen combination fitted onboard ocean going merchant vessels.

The project will be kicked off in September 2019 and invites a number of industry partners to take part in the joint industry platform. The aim is to deliver a concept for presentaion and later approval for the IMO. Read more about partnerships, the project itself and much more on www.decarbonICE.org
