Ionada And Chart Industries Sign MOU To Collaborate On Carbon Capture Utilization And Storage (CCUS) Projects In The Shipping Industry

ATLANTA, Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc.

ATLANTA, Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. ("Chart" or the "Company") (GTLS) - Get Chart Industries, Inc. Report, a leading global manufacturer of liquefaction and cryogenic equipment serving multiple applications in the energy and industrial gas end markets, is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Ionada, a global leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of exhaust gas cleaning systems that reduce emissions from the marine and power generation industries, to collaborate on Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCUS) projects that will leverage Ionada's carbon capture technology with Chart's extensive expertise in CO2 storage and handling systems. The non-exclusive cooperation agreement will see both companies develop and use technology to reduce the carbon footprint of the shipping industry. Carbon captured via Ionada's technology can be stored onboard in Chart CO2 ISO containers or in engineered built-for-purpose type C tanks and then offloaded at ports. Once offloaded, the CO2 can either be permanently stored in geological formations or put to beneficial use in CO2-consuming industries, such as the agricultural, industrial, energy, or food and beverage sectors.

Chart has been producing engineered cryogenic storage and distribution solutions for many industries, including the maritime market, for over 50 years. "We are thrilled to partner with Ionada to help improve the carbon footprint of the shipping industry," said Chart CEO Jill Evanko. "The solutions being developed with Ionada will greatly benefit the maritime sector and help ship owners reach greenhouse gas emission targets set forth by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). This is also a great example of how our equipment is agnostic to the process itself - it can work with various process solutions to offer the most flexibility to our end customers."

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce carbon intensity in international shipping by 40% by 2030, and to cut the total annual greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008.

With cryogenic storage tank manufacturing sites all around the world, including the U.S., China, the Czech Republic, Italy and India, Chart is well positioned to supply CO2 storage and handling solutions to shipowners globally and expects numerous ship retrofits for carbon capture in the coming years.
