US East coast ports launch green ammonia feasibility study


The increasing promise of green ammonia in the maritime industries is rapidly being recognised. Now some major players in the maritime industry have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to undertake a feasibility study of green ammonia to fuel ships operating on the east coast of the United States.

Ammonia is a promising alternative marine fuel for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the shipping industry. It does not emit CO2 when burned and aligns with the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) goal of halving emissions by 2050. Green ammonia produced from renewable sources is carbon-free and can provide significant environmental benefits.

The participants of the study include many heavy-hitters in the industry, including the American Bureau of Shipping, A.P.
