Funding Secured for Clean Maritime Ammonia Cracker and Combustion Engine Integration Trials

We’re delighted to share that an AFC Energy-led consortium has been awarded £676,500 of government funding to demonstrate the feasibility of ammonia fuelled internal combustion engines for the maritime sector, enabled by the integration of AFC Energy’s proprietary Ammonia Cracking Technology.

AFC Energy will share the grant along with partners MAHLE Powertrain, Clean Air Power and the University of Nottingham. Funding has been secured under the UK Government’s Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition Round 4 (CMDC4), funded by the Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom and delivered by Innovate UK. Funding commences in Q1 of this year with results from the proof-of-concept demonstration expected to be published twelve months later.
Ammonia is widely considered an excellent hydrogen carrier and sustainable fuel capable of supporting the #decarbonisation of the global maritime industry. The demonstration will have worldwide application across maritime vessels seeking to adopt ammonia combustion as its preferred zero carbon propulsion fuel. This is a great project with world leading partners to accelerate the adoption of ammonia as a fuel for the future.
