Starting next year, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) car carriers visiting California ports will use an emissions capture and control technology developed by STAX Engineering. This move, costing NYK up to $16 million, is in response to the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) stringent emissions regulations. The technology involves using a giant black pipe to funnel ship exhaust into a barge or land-based system, capturing harmful gases without the need for onboard equipment modifications. This initiative comes ahead of CARB’s 2025 regulation expansion to include car carriers and tankers, aiming to significantly reduce air pollution from maritime operations.
