Scanship decarbonizing tech for two newbuilds in breakthrough order

Scanship entered into a contract with a European shipyard to supply its new waste-to-energy carbon capture technology for two mega-sized cruise ships.

Scanship MAP process

The contract signed Thursday with the shipyard includes delivery of the Scanship microwave assisted pyrolysis (MAP) process to produce clean energy from all shipboard generated garbage, food waste and wastewater residues.

This novel solution with Scanship MAP will also include other innovations to optimize the processing of all waste streams for the purposes of resource recovery, low energy consumption and creating an end-of-waste solution.

Commercial milestone

'This is a breakthrough contract for us and a commercialization milestone for the Scanship MAP technology,' Scanship CEO Henrik Badin said. 'With this contract, we are maximizing the environmental sustainability impact for these mega-ships, making significant contribution to decarbonizing their operations along with an advanced circular solution for reuse and end-of-waste.'

Options for two more deliveries

The contract includes options for deliveries to another two vessels in same series. Earlier, Scanship announced advanced wastewater purification contracts for the same vessels.
