C-Job considers ammonia as a suitable renewable fuel for the maritime industry. Ammonia has a higher volumetric energy density compared to compressed hydrogen and liquid hydrogen. It can be stored as a liquid on room temperature on 10 bar or -34°C on atmospheric pressure. The production can easily be scaled to supply the needs of the maritime industry. Both the nitrogen and hydrogen production can be realized by the overcapacity of sustainable energy. The complete chain is free of carbon emissions. Relying on decades of industrial experience transporting and handling ammonia, using ammonia a fuel is a viable next step.
The maritime industry currently relies on fossil fuels like Heavy Fuel Oil and Marine Diesel Fuel. Ammonia as a fuel for the maritime industry offers a sustainable alternative enabling a transition away from the fossil fuel dependency.
