UK: Polarcus Works to Reduce CO2 Emissions from its Fleet

Polarcus Limited announced yesterday that the Company has entered into a research collaboration project with Cambridge Carbon Capture Ltd (CCC) in the United Kingdom to develop carbon mineralization technology. Such technology could potentially be used to reduce CO2 emissions from ships, including emissions from Polarcus’ fleet of 3D seismic vessels.

As part of the agreement Polarcus and CCC have agreed to jointly fund a 3 year Ph.D. research program at the University of Sheffield. The program will operate under the “E-Futures Doctoral Training Centre” scheme operated at the university.

Dr. Robin Francis, CEO Cambridge Carbon Capture, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Polarcus, an acknowledged leader in reducing emissions from marine vessels. The collaboration will help us to further develop our carbon capture technologies for use in the marine and other sectors.”

It is believed that the research project will make an important contribution to Polarcus’ goal of being the most environmentally responsible towed marine seismic service provider in the industry.
