Ammonia fuel for glass production demonstrated in Japan

Asahi Glass Corporation announced it has successfully used 100% ammonia fuel to produce architectural glass over two days of testing at its Yokohama Technical Center, with NOx emissions below environmental thresholds. The news follows successful ammonia co-firing tests to produce cement clinker by Mitsubishi UBE Cement Corporation.

Creating Ammonia Value Chain for the Smooth Transition toward Carbon Neutrality

According to the IHI’s ‘Group Management Policies 2023’ announced this May, Clean Energy business represented by fuel ammonia and others is defined as Development-focus Business, which would drive our future growth in parallel with Aero Engines and Space business. Our aim is to build and enhance the value of our entire ammonia value chain by implementing direct ammonia utilization technology especially for power sector, preparing infrastructure for transportation and storage and also developing new technology for green ammonia production. In the session, IHI’s effort to implement total value chain of ammonia is introduced, especially to use ammonia in thermal power…

NoGAPS vessel project enters next phase

The second phase of the NoGAPS project is well underway. Led by the Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, a detailed plan for the design, operation and business case for the future MS NoGAPS vessel will be developed. Construction and delivery is expected in 2024-25. Also in Scandinavia, Viridis Bulk Carriers has been awarded AiP from Bureau Veritas for its ammonia-fueled, short-sea, bulk carrier design.

Mitigating emissions risks from ammonia-powered vessels

Technology solutions to manage emissions from ammonia-powered internal combustion engines will be commercially available on a similar timeline to the engines themselves, a new report from the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center concludes. Although the authors are confident ammonia combustion emissions (including the potent greenhouse molecule N2O) will be successfully minimised, key gaps include a lack of industry-wide emissions thresholds and a poor understanding of the well-to-tank emissions of ammonia fuel, particularly CCS-based ammonia.
