    Abstract

    Onboard carbon capture and storage is an excellent solution to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from shipping. This paper focuses on a case ship study on design and installation of a practical carbon absorption and solidification system which was proposed in authors’ previous work (Peilin and Haibin, 2014). The design process is based on authors’ previous work of simulation on lab-scale experiment. The specifications of the selected ship will be presented and utilized for its modelling. The processes of simulation illustrate modifications of simulation model, design of physical model, application of orthogonal design method, introduction of equipment and software and analysis of results. This paper also presents tank design, positioning and CAD drawing of the system on board after all processes and systems are derived. This paper demonstrates general processes of carbon absorption and solidification system design for a case ship so that design of the system for a new ship could follow the same procedures.
