Capillary action (sometimes capillarity, capillary motion, capillary effect, or wicking) is the process of a liquid flowing in narrow spaces without the assistance of, or even in opposition to, external forces like gravity.
Capital expenditures are funds used by a company to acquire, upgrade, and maintain physical assets such as property, plants, buildings, technology, or equipment.
Vessel demanding relatively large investments, e.g. cruise ships, gas and chemical tankers, etc.
In common understanding, by capsizing people generally mean a sudden passing of a ship from the upright position to the upside down position.
A warping head with a vertical axis used for handling mooring or other lines. - Anchor capstan – A capstan in which the warping head is replaced by a cable lifter.
The highest officer aboard ship responsible for the safety of the ship, crew and cargo. The captain oversees all ship operations, keeps ship records and handles accounts
Vessels specially designed for efficient transport of cars (pure car carriers), or variety of cars, trucks, tractors and buses (pure car/truck carriers).
A one section ramp with flaps, integrated in a fixed or hoistable car deck panel, or just hinged or connected to the car deck edge.
Light decks fitted in ferries and ro-ro vessels. Except for pure car carriers, car decks are usually designed to be movable.
The carbon bubble is a hypothesized bubble in the valuation of companies dependent on fossil-fuel-based energy production, because the true costs of carbon dioxide in intensifying global warming are not yet taken into account in a company's stock market valuation.
A process of capturing waste CO2 from industry and storing in a method where it is not released into the atmosphere.
Process of trapping carbon dioxide produced by burning fossil fuels or any other chemical or biological process and storing it in such a way that it is unable to affect the atmosphere.
A carbon credit is a generic term for any tradable certificate or permit representing the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide or the equivalent amount of a different greenhouse gas.
The carbon cycle is the biogeochemical cycle by which carbon is exchanged among the biosphere, pedosphere, geosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere of the Earth.
Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring gas in the atmosphere. It is also produced by burning fossil fuels which is described as a "greenhouse" gas which is extremely detrimental to the environment. Greenhouse gases are on the increase but are being offset by the increasing use of renewable energies.
A fixed installation designed to displace the oxygen in the protected space and thus extinguish the fire, usually used to fight fires in engine rooms, boiler rooms, pump rooms and holds.
Carbon fixation or сarbon assimilation is the process by which inorganic carbon (particularly in the form of carbon dioxide) is converted to organic compounds by living organisms.
Amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless dangerous flammable gas that is slightly less dense than air.
Carbon neutrality means having a balance between emitting carbon and absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. This can be acheived by reducing carbon emmissions and capturing carbon or funding carbon capture in other areas creating a zero effect.
