The shipping industry is under increasing pressure to act on the Paris Agreement and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The substantial emission reductions that must be achieved over the next decades are expected to drive technology development and, particularly, the introduction of low-carbon fuels. Furthermore, authorities are increasingly paying attention to the consequences of hazardous NOx, SOx and particle emissions at the local level.
Among all fuel alternatives under discussion, we have identified liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), ammonia, methanol, biofuel, hydrogen, and other power-to-fuel solutions as promising alternative fuels for shipping. Amongst which, green ammonia has shown great potential for deep sea shipping.
Both hydrogen and ammonia can play a significant role in decarbonizing the world’s energy supply and increasing focus as the energy transition moves at pace. Yet, to fully realize the potential, industry and governments must focus on three key areas to scale a hydrogen and ammonia economy: 1. Strategy, Regulation and Policy, 2. Research & Development, and 3. Implementation into projects and case studies
