Hydrogen - How is it Applicable in the Maritime Industry

Hydrogen is a crucial building block to many zero-emission fuels, including liquified hydrogen, ammonia, and synthetic fuels such as methanol, LNG etc.

Energy companies, including many in Australia, are working on relentlessly on the production of zero-emission hydrogen at commercial scale and a tolerable cost. In parallel, the marine industry is working on engines that can use the power of hydrogen, whether as ammonia, LNG or liquefied hydrogen.

Our presenters will look at both the production of green hydrogen, the development of a hydrogen-fuelled marine engine and how hydrogen is applicable in the marine industry.

The learning objectives are:

- Understanding of the pathway for the production of Green Hydrogen Fuel

     - Where are we now, Where are we heading to, What are the barriers and expected timeline and projects underway

- Knowledge about hydrogen engines,

    - pros and cons of hydrogen fuel and engines, the pathway to commercial H2 engines, barriers & projects underway

    - How to get certification with the existence of IGF codes

Ammonia – A Zero-Emission Solution for Shipping

Ammonia is a front runner in the zero-emission fuel race for the marine industry. It’s is a liquid at near ambient conditions, and relatively good energy density are seemingly overcoming the concerns of its toxic nature.
Our presenters will look at both the production of green ammonia and the development of an ammonia marine engine.
Webinar learning outcomes:

- Understanding of the development path of ammonia fuel production from the current process to green ammonia
- Knowledge of the development taking place on ammonia fuelled engines.

LNG – Towards Decarbonisation

As we all know, the shipping industry must decarbonise efficiently and sustainably to meet the IMO targets. To do this, we must take a 2 pronged approach grown are LNG fleet and bunkering capacity as today LNG is the cleanest marine fuel available. The second prong is to working relentlessly on zero-emission solutions.

A recent peer-reviewed well to wake LCA study for LNG from NW Australia found a 33% reduction in GHG emissions.

This webinar is going to look at both the Well to Tank and the Tank to Wake elements of LNG and their emissions. Discussed will be where the industry has come from and their plans for a future reduction in GHG emissions.

Methanol as Marine Fuel – Access, OPEX and Your Bottom Line

Methanol is a plentiful, safe, clean-burning alternative to traditional marine fuel and, provided it is produced using a green energy source, has much lower life cycle emissions. Methanol also has the benefit of being able to be utilised with low-cost conversions of existing engines and bunkering infrastructure. Hear the facts about methanol from a production, use and handling perspective to determine whether methanol could be part of your fuel mix for now and into the future.

Alternative Fuels – An Overview to Feed your Strategy

Since the beginning of the maritime industry, there have been one means of power, and over the centuries, there have been three transitions, from sail to coal to fuel oil.

The drive of today’s fuel transition is to decarbonise shipping. It is unlikely shipping future will be one dominate source of power as in the past.

There are several alternatives in development that have different advantages and disadvantages. These advantages and disadvantages are why there will not be one fuel in the future. Different vessels with different needs will choose different fuels.

A number of these fuels are yet to be developed as commercial fuels or even to be used in ships. The world is now working on these solutions with close to the same relentless passion as they are the COVID vaccine.

Douglas Raitt of Lloyd's register presented the alternatives that are leading the pack, the work required to bring them to be commercially viable as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the fuels.

MLAANZ Seminar - Decarbonising Shipping:​ We Must Start Today​

The shipping industry must decarbonise. IMO has set the targets. Now the question remains and continues to be debated - How. There is only one way.

As the cleanest marine fuel currently available for use, liquefied natural gas (LNG) must be part of a TWO-PRONGED APPROACH TO DECARBONISING SHIPPING by growing LNG ship fleet and bunkering capacity, as the world works relentlessly on developing zero emission fuels.

It is not a case of doing one or the other. We need both.

Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) 101

Life cycle analysis (LCA, also known as life-cycle assessment,) is an essential tool in the global effort to reduce GHG emissions. It is a methodology for assessing environmental impacts associated with all the stages of the life-cycle (cradle to grave) of a product, process or service. An LCA is used to determine a fuel’s GHG emissions.

This webinar is to provide you with the knowledge of what LCA is and the framework. After the webinar, you will be able to understand and critically analyse LCA.

IMO Update – The Shipping Emissions Reduction Ambition

The first webinar in the Maritime Future Fuels & Energy Efficiency webinar series brought to you by Clean Marine Fuel Institute (Clean MFI) and Maritime industry Australia Ltd (MIAL).

The IMO is under significant pressure to progress the development of further regulation to reduce carbon emissions from the sector. Time is running out if the required international regulations are to be implemented in time to meet the targets set in the Initial IMO Strategy on reduction of GHG emissions from ships. Furthermore, there are moves afoot in the European Parliament to include international shipping in the European emissions trading scheme.
