Ammonia Shipping Safety Concerns – by IRENA

Here’s an article posted in Recharge News about the predictions of IRENA about the future of Hydrogen. 

According to the article,

  • IRENA predicts that a quarter of the world’s hydrogen will be traded internationally by 2050, with 45% of that being shipped as ammonia.
  • However, shipping ammonia poses serious risks, including burns, blindness, asphyxiation, and environmental damage.
  • The maritime industry already has a poor safety record, and the use of ammonia as a fuel is relatively untested and risky.
  • The Clean Marine Methanol Institute acknowledges the dangers but believes that with proper precautions, ammonia can be shipped safely.
