LNG Ship in transport

LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS (LNG)

LNG is a natural gas produced from cool down methane. As a fuel, its NOx, SOx and PM emissions are significantly lower than conventional bunker fuels.

LNG supply is available worldwide, and there are no limitations to the production capacities of it.

Despite these advantages, LNG does not currently achieve zero CO2 emissions and lacks sufficient bunkering infrastructures worldwide. Additionally, there is a risk of methane slips due to leakage or incomplete combustion.

Bio Fuel plantation

BIOFUELS

Biofuels are combustible fuels created from biomass. They emit close to zero CO2 and SOx emissions, and low NOx and PM emissions.

Fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) and hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) are the most promising biofuels, as they are drop-in oils ready for use in existing engines and infrastructure.

1st generation biofuels are produced directly from food crops, while 2nd & 3rd generation biofuels utilize non-edible plants and are sustainable.

But biofuels require a large quantity of water and crops, that may result in high food prices and food shortages.

Liquefied Petroleum Gas Bunker

LIQUEFIED PETROLEUM GAS (LPG)

LPG is extracted from natural gas and can contain zero sulfur. It produces low CO2, NOx and PM emissions.

It can be stored anywhere without risk of degradation and can be transported safely. LPG may also be quickly adopted due to existing infrastructure for bunkering and distribution.

However, LPG has a low energy density and requires heavy storage tanks on board. Existing ships must be retrofitted to burn LPG fuel.

LONG-TERM FUELS

Long-term fuels are expected to be ready after 2030 as a zero carbon solution due to the time required for research, newer infrastructures and technology advancements.

Hydrogen Powered marine vessel

HYDROGEN

Hydrogen is a colourless and non toxic gas, and can be produced from renewable energy.

It emits zero GHG and carbon emissions, with a high energy efficiency compared to other fuel alternatives. It also does not effuse any noise or visual pollution.

For hydrogen to be a viable fuel, safety issues must be resolved while new infrastructures and production facilities are needed.

Sailing Bunker Ship

AMMONIA

Ammonia emits no CO2 or SOx emissions and is a cost effective fuel with two variants.

Grey ammonia is made from natural gas and green ammonia is made from renewable electricity combined with water and nitrogen.

The technology to produce ammonia is readily available. Also it is easy to store on board since it does not require any additional storage tanks.

However, there are safety risks as ammonia is highly toxic and new infrastructures are needed for its use as a bunker fuel.

Bunker silo farm

METHANOL

Methanol is a biodegradable, clean-burning fuel with significantly low CO2, SOx and PM emissions.

It poses no storage safety risks, and has low production costs in comparison to other alternative fuels.

However, methanol’s energy efficiency is significantly lower than traditional fossil fuels, and it would require larger fuel tanks or more frequent refueling. Additionally, new bunker facilities and procedures must be implemented for use.

BATTERY SYSTEMS

Batteries can store energy and enhance the efficiency of the propulsion system

They are beneficial to most ships operating on short journeys.

However, batteries alone are not strong enough for ships operating in deep sea.

Offshore Wind power farm

WIND-ASSISTED PROPULSION

Through sails or other wind capture devices, ships are propelled without burning any fuel resulting in significantly less emissions

But sail performance could be impacted due to unfavourable wind conditions or mechanical failures

However, there are safety risks as ammonia is highly toxic and new infrastructures are needed for its use as a bunker fuel.

Sea Refinery

FUEL CELL SYSTEMS

Fuel cells are similar to batteries because they are generated through an electro-chemical reaction and have zero emissions.

However, they require a continuous source of fuel and oxygen to produce electricity.

Due to a lack of infrastructure it is not ready for use in marine vessels.

However, methanol’s energy efficiency is significantly lower than traditional fossil fuels, and it would require larger fuel tanks or more frequent refueling. Additionally, new bunker facilities and procedures must be implemented for use.

CARBON CAPTURE & STORAGE

This technology captures carbon from fossil fuels and stores it beneath the earth’s surface, eliminating all carbon emissions.

However, it is a complex process that lacks adequate research about the security of underground carbon dioxide storage.
