Green ammonia meets the maritime need for carbon free fuels
There are many good reasons why the maritime industry has high hopes for green ammonia as the fuel for the future and herald is as one of the best carbon-free fuel options – in particular for ocean-going vessels.
The smelly and low-cost fertilizer emits no carbon dioxide or harmful pollutants when it is burned. Moreover, it can be made using renewable electricity, water, and air. Last but not least, it has 10 times the energy density of a lithium-ion battery. As a result, a vessel can go on for days and weeks at sea and still have plenty of room for cargo.
Ticking all environmental- and business friendly boxes, green ammonia is destined to play a pivotal role in our transition to clean and sustainable fuels. It now comes down to ensure the right and safe technical solution as well as a global infrastructure, so ships can fill ammonia tanks wherever they dock.
