Role of Green Ammonia in Global Shipping

Here’s an article in safety4sea that talks about the potential of Green Ammonia for energy revolution in global shipping.

The key takeaways are

  1. Green ammonia is a promising alternative fuel for shipping, capable of fulfilling over 60% of global shipping’s energy needs.
  2. The IMO’s Fourth GHG study 2020 highlights green hydrogen-based fuels, including ammonia, as a key component in the sector’s decarbonization.
  3. Trafigura, a leading commodity trader, has identified green ammonia as a key future fuel.
  4. India’s Indian Hydrogen Initiative (IHI) is planning to commence studies on green ammonia production and utilization businesses.
