On the road to Ammonia

Wed, Jun 1, 2022 · 9:30 AM · Paris
About This Webinar

It is clear that alternative fuels will play an essential role in the decarbonization of the shipping industry in coming decades. As an intrinsically zero-carbon fuel, ammonia has sparked interest as a leading contender in the future fuel mix.
Already widely transported by sea for trade, ammonia thus benefits from existing infrastructure and robust handling procedures around the world. However, a deep dive into ammonia’s potential as a marine fuel serves to highlight challenges that need to be overcome.
This webinar will help you better understand the challenges and enablers that will impact the future uptake of ammonia-as-fuel. We will shed light on ammonia’s potential, including the development of combustion engines, production pathways and safety and regulatory considerations.

  • Overview of safety concerns & regulatory landscape - Bureau Veritas
  • Shades of ammonia: a deep dive on production pathways - Hy2Gen
  • The latest in ammonia combustion engines development - MAN Energy Solutions
