MAN Energy Solutions 2 stroke Ammonia engine

The marine industry is convinced that Ammonia is not only a very strong candidate as a future fuel, but also that Ammonia will be one of the leading future fuels. MAN Energy solutions has worked since 2019 on the development of a two stroke engine burning Ammonia by using the Diesel principle (as used for other fuels such as Methane , Methanol, Ethane and LPG) In this presentation, we will give an update on the engine design, which we will start testing in Copenhagen in Oct. 2022. The first ammonia engine (with final engine design and combustion process) is scheduled…

Overview of NSW Hydrogen Strategy

The $3 billion NSW Hydrogen Strategy sets out the NSW Government’s plan to support commercialisation of green hydrogen supply chains in NSW. Michael Probert, Principal Policy Officer Hydrogen and Clean Energy, will provide an overview and status update on the major actions from the Strategy, including Australia’s first and only legislated green hydrogen target and certificate scheme. The presentation will also cover the Strategy’s network charge exemptions and the ammonia market study being commissioned by the NSW Government.

Is the industry rushing towards a safety fallout?

The new energy revolution driven by carbon emissions reduction goals is bringing many new challenges, new technology, and application of proven technology in new ways and to expanded scales. There seems to be a race taking place towards low prices that would make large scale export offtake agreements economically viable in comparison to current energy sources. There are also ambitious emission reduction targets set by our politicians, coupled with apparent haste in the industry to abate what is termed the “climate emergency”. To seasoned safety engineering practitioners, these are warning signs that are precursors to potential major accidents. This presentation…

Quantifying the emissions footprint of the nitrogen industry

Understanding and quantifying the emissions footprint of an industry is critical to decarbonisation efforts. Without high quality and standardised data, an industry will continually stall on lowering emissions. But this is quickly changing. Companies are seeking to understand their emissions landscape and benchmark themselves accurately. Many leading companies are setting ambitious emissions reduction targets. But its not just the first movers from whom this data matters. Policy is changing as with emissions trading schemes are rolled out across the world. This will force the laggards into action. CRU has developed readily available standardised data and methodologies to capture emissions across…

Hinicio & CertifHy

Since 2014, Hinicio is leading CertifHy, the first EU-wide Guarantee of Origin scheme for hydrogen, including a definition for Green Hydrogen and (non-renewable) low-carbon Hydrogen. We will share our experience and provide insights and relevant lessons learned from designing and implementing CertifHy. We will touch upon dealing with multiple primary energies going into a process which might be renewable and non-renewable, and the carbon intensity calculation in multi-input and multi-output plants.

Towards Global Ammonia Energy Certification Standards

Considerable attention is now being paid to both life-cycle carbon intensity standards and guarantees of origin for many low carbon fuels, including ammonia energy, to ensure that international trade may be facilitated, expedited, and given priority guarantees of market access under long-term supply agreements. Standardisation and certification are crucial to these markets.  Further, the prospect of commanding a “clean/green” market premium, which buyers in markets such as the European Union and East Asia may be prepared to pay for ammonia energy imports, may also set the necessary impulses to stimulate the domestic ammonia energy economies around the world. Certifications can,…

How to reduce the LCoA of green NH3 with hybrid CSP-PV plants

The gNH3 production requires a large amount of renewable energy, where the LCoA is strongly affected by the LCoE. If it is considered only a solar solution, the low Photovoltaic (PV) technology cost can achieve competitive gH2 cost. However, the industrial NH3 plant would require power stability in a 24/7 profile, and a storage solution must be included. In this case, the Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) presents an unique and promising advantage with its dispatchability to fulfill this necessity. Therefore, a hybrid CSP+PV solution can give the best cost solution power mix for the green ammonia industry.

Scaling Up H2 Electrolyzer Technology to Create a Sustainable Future

Cummins is a global power leader that designs, manufactures, sells and services traditional and alternative fuel powertrains and powertrain-related components including batteries, electrified power systems, hydrogen generation (electrolyzers), and fuel cell products. As the need to decarbonize industry and mobility becomes clearer, hydrogen needs to rise to scale as a key component of the global energy solution. Processes like ammonia, methanol, refining, other industries, and mobility have been revolutionizing their value chain to meet these climate changing goals. Cummins intends to advance affordable hydrogen production, transport, storage, and utilization to enable decarbonization and market opportunities across these market sectors. “Creating…
