TLDR:

A UK-based start-up called Seabound has successfully tested its carbon capture technology on a commercial container ship for the first time. The prototype calcium looping carbon capture system, which was developed in collaboration with Lomar’s corporate venture lab, was tested on a two-month voyage and achieved a carbon capture efficiency of 78%. During the pilot, the technology captured around one tonne of CO2 per day. Seabound’s technology captures CO2 emissions and converts them into solid calcium carbonate pebbles that can be used or turned back into quicklime and CO2.
