Japanese shipping firm NYK on Wednesday (18 September) said it has participated in two recent events at which it presented its concept for using ammonia as marine fuel to achieve zero-emission ships in order to strengthen international cooperation for decarbonization.
Ammonia does not emit carbon dioxide (CO2) when it is heated and can contribute to the effort to address global warming. In addition, if CO2-free hydrogen is used, zero emissions can be said to be achieved.
NYK is thus considering the use of ammonia as marine fuel, a possible solution for decarbonization.
