Athens, September 21, 2023
On September 21, 2023, the “Second Decarbonization Seminar” organized by Ecospray was held in Athens, at the Intercontinental Athenaeum Hotel, highlighting all the progress the company is making on its path toward decarbonization and toward the 2050 IMO targets, in particular the development of CO2 capture technologies for the maritime industry.
Exactly 1 year after the first seminar, which also took place in Athens, Ecospray in fact brought together in this second exclusive event stakeholders from the industry by updating the Greek maritime community and the international press on the latest updates of its Carbon capture technologies, analyzing through case studies their installation on board and addressing the issue of CO2 management. An event that witnessed the involvement and influential collaboration of external entities such as the University of Genoa, Eni, and the professionals’ consulting in the engineering field.
The pilot plant designed and developed by Ecospray over the course of this year, in fact, after several phases of testing in Ecospray’s laboratory, carried out also in collaboration with the University of Turin, was installed for about 2 months on a commercial ship to test the solutions under real conditions.
During the seminar “Capture the future: evolution and technologies for decarbonization,” the company presented the results of the testing phase, which led to the industrialization of the two technologies for Carbon Capture: CO2 capture with Amines and with Calcium Hydroxide, with presentations led by Filippo Lossani, Director B.U. Marine and Marcello Vercellino, Sales Manager B.U. Marine.
In front of a qualified international audience were also several external guest speakers, such as Barbara Bosio lecturer at the University of Genoa, Stavros Hatzigrigoris of Advanced Engineering Services and Mauro Risi of DG Energy Evolution Eni S.p.A., as well as the company board: Maurizio Archetti, Ecospray President, Franco Porcellacchia, CEO, Alberto Di Cecio, General Manager.
