Ammonia as Marine Fuel R&D Underway (Ind. Report)
IMO
Date: 2020-08-12
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) reports it is investigating and comparing the use of ammonia as an effective and environment friendly marine fuel to other carbon-neutral alternatives. Ammonia is a carbon neutral fuel with a high probability of being commercialized. To that end, NYK Line, Japan Marine United Corporation, and Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) this month signed a joint R&D agreement for the commercialization of an ammonia-fueled ammonia gas carrier that would use ammonia as the main fuel.

Because CO2 is not emitted when ammonia is burned, ammonia is expected to be used as an alternative fuel for vessels. The IMO aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40 percent by 2030, and 70 percent by 2050.

Maritime Shipper NYK Touts First Carbon-Neutral Voyage (Int'l.)
NYK
Date: 2019-09-20
In the Land of the Rising Sun, maritime shipping giant NYK Line is reporting its first carbon-neutral voyage from Japan to the Middle East offset 5,000 tons of CO2.

The voyage was completed by the car carrier Aries Leader which is equipped with the latest energy-saving technologies, which the company claims reduces CO2 emissions per unit by 30 pct compared with existing large pure car carriers, comparing emissions on a per car basis. In this initiative, the remaining CO2 emissions not yet eliminated by technology were offset by carbon credits. (Source: NYK, PR, Sept., 2019) Contact: NYK Line, www.nyk.com › english
