The webinar explores technical and financial feasibility of using ammonia as a marine fuel. Ammonia is considered as one of the zero-carbon-fuel options for marine industry to achieve its carbon emission reduction targets. Although free from carbon emissions, ammonia being a toxic gas with low energy density brings about a set of safety challenges and commercial considerations. The talk discusses how Risk-Based Design (RBD) methodology can be applied to identify and manage critical safety challenges associated with the design of an ammonia fuelled Newcastlemax bulk carrier. It further evaluates the financial viability of this vessel taking into consideration of possible implementation of a maritime carbon pricing.
