Ammonia as a Fuel of the Future: A Ship Operator’s perspective

Ammonia as a Marine fuel is a new introduction to the Bunker industry. In order to be better prepared for setting up the required infrastructure etc for an efficient supply chain, it is important to understand what are the downstream challenges that suppliers can expect. A key aspect of this is to hear it from potential end-consumers and gain their perspective. Maersk is committed to reducing its Co2 emissions by almost 60% (over Y2008 baseline) by 2030 and is exploring Ammonia as a possible pathway to get there. This session will address challenges foreseen in adopting Ammonia by a Dry…

Advancing Ammonia as a Marine Fuel

Buoyed by promising new research, Ammonia is emerging as a marine fuel contender among various future fuel candidates that could decarbonize shipping. Jérôme Leprince-Ringuet (Vice President, Marine Fuels, TotalEnergies) will explore ammonia’s potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the maritime industry, and to help turn the tide on climate change. Through his presentation, you will: – Learn why ammonia holds significant potential as a marine fuel candidate, from emission reduction to scalability factors. – Gain insight into the safety, technology maturity and availability challenges facing ammonia’s promise as a marine fuel, and – TotalEnergies’ ongoing efforts and joint…

The Green and Blue Ammonia Value Chain

As green and blue ammonia begin to be utilized as a zero-carbon marine fuel, we will see the need for substantial infrastructure development to support the demand. The green and blue ammonia value chains differ in the hydrogen production method used; green ammonia being generated from water electrolysis and blue ammonia being generated from a conventional pathway, using natural gas, but with the addition of carbon capture. The level of commercialization and the relative total installed costs for green and blue ammonia plants will be discussed.

Ammonia bunkering – simulation of hypothetical release scenarios in Singapore

Ammonia has the potential to be a low carbon fuel for shipping. As an important step for ships to adopt the fuel, the bunkering operation of ammonia shall be established. Ammonia bunkering can be characterized by different infrastructure and operation requirements from that of conventional marine fuel. The study presents potential bunkering concepts and configurations. The dispersion pattern due to accidental ammonia release is investigated by far-field simulation using PHAST software. The impacts of various factors on the dispersion patterns are explored to provide preliminary understandings of future ammonia bunkering safety in Singapore. Slides: please see the attached file.

Certifying renewable ammonia

The Smart Energy Council has established a world leading zero carbon certification for renewable hydrogen, renewable ammonia and renewable metals. This overview of the scheme will include results of the first project being certified under the scheme and the current pre-certification of the Yara renewable ammonia plant being built in the Pilbara, Western Australia.

Highlights from the EU debate on H2 certification

Climate mitigation is key driver for H2 roadmaps and policies. Regulatory framework still in its infancy, but it will evolve dynamically. In 1st phase, H2 GHG emission (and other sustainability) standards must take into account the still high level of power sector emissions in EU and elsewhere, and the need to get the clean H2 market up and running. But in the medium term, GHG emission standards will get closer and closer to true climate neutrality. I personally would anticipate this and would not advise to make long term investments in “grey-green” or “grey-blue” H2 => It might be accepted…

Hydrogen Certification

The ability for consumers to have certainty with regard to the origin of their energy products is crucial if Australia is to meet its potential to be a top exporter of clean hydrogen. The hydrogen industry is on a journey towards the development of a certification scheme to allow this. Alignment on key concepts and close engagement with the Federal Government has allowed the industry to progress towards a scheme which will meet the needs of producers and consumers. The process to date could provide a blueprint as ammonia producers embark on the same journey.
