Green Instruments and Everimpact selected for methane emissions analysis

Safetytech Accelerator, together with CoolCo, MOL, and Shell, has selected Green Instruments and Everimpact systems to be evaluated by the Methane Abatement in Maritime innovation initiative (MAMII).

This was established to tackle the challenge of measuring methane emissions arising from the shipboard combustion process.

Safetytech Accelerator already has 12 methane measurement technology companies as members of its technology ecosystem, selected from more than 80 emissions-focused entities. Two of its members, Green Instruments and Everimpact, will now join in the evaluation exercise including feasibility and pilot studies with CoolCo, MOL, and Shell.

Denmark-based Green Instruments has emissions monitoring systems for both marine and land-based applications. Its G7000 continuous emissions measurement system (CEMS) monitors sulphur and carbon performance in ships’ scrubbers.

Everimpact was set up initially to monitor greenhouse gases using satellites, sensors, and artificial intelligence. Together with Mitsubishi and Wilhelmsen, it has launched a sensor-based CEMS for ships, one of which has already been installed on a Mitsubishi vessel.

MAMII, with 16 major shipping companies as partners, was set up in September 2022 and is led by Safety Accelerator, itself established by Lloyd’s Register. Its aim is to bring together industry partners, technology innovators, and maritime stakeholders with the objective of measuring and mitigating methane emissions. A key priority for MAMII has been methane slip – unburned methane in the exhaust stack.

Casper Nørgaard Jensen, Sales Manager at Denmark-based Green Instruments, commented: “We are thrilled to be selected amongst the industry providers and look forward to participating in this work that falls so much in line with the vision of our company. The decarbonisation transition relies on facts and not assumptions, hence it is imperative that we start to actually measure ship emissions and collect accurate and concrete data.”

Everimpact founder and CEO, Mathieu Carlier, said: “We’re excited that our continuous emissions measurement system, already used to measure fuel emissions from the exhaust stacks of ships, is being evaluated to track methane slip. Joining forces with MAMII will get us one step further on our mission to accelerate the decarbonisation of shipping with better data.”

MAMII partners are currently Capital Gas, Carnival Corporation & Plc, Celsius Tankers, CoolCo, Global Meridian Holdings, Knutsen Group, Lloyd’s Register, Maran Gas Maritime, Mediterranean Shipping Company, MISC, Mitsui OSK, NYK Line, Seaspan Corporation, Shell, TMS Cardiff Gas, and United Overseas Management.
