Sustainability Whitepaper: Ammonia as Marine Fuel

Many technologies are being considered to reduce carbon emissions in shipping. The ABS publication Setting the Course to Low Carbon Shipping: Pathways to Sustainable Future, has categorized the available maritime fuel options for decarbonization. Among them, ammonia (NH3 ) is identified as a zero-carbon fuel that can enter the global market relatively quickly and help meet the GHG reduction target for 2050 set by the IMO. Ammonia offers ship owners and operators a zero-carbon tank-to-wake emissions profile, regardless of the source of the fuel.

Through a series of sustainability whitepaper publications, ABS has individually detailed certain carbon emission reduction technologies. This whitepaper provides information for the consideration of ammonia as a marine fuel option in both the near-term and long-term.
