Superyachts are large emitters of greenhouse gases, as well as other emissions such as NO<sub>x</sub>, SO<sub>x</sub> and PM. In order to meet the climate goals set by the IMO, to reduce GHG emissions by 50% in 2050, alternative fuels are being investigated. Methanol is an alternative fuels with great potential. Methanol can be produced...

The pressure to reduce emissions in the sector of inland shipping is increasing. Especially considering emissions of environmental pollutants, the increasing pressure gives rise to the question how to get insight into emissions distributions along an inland waterway network. In this research, a bottom-up method is developed that is able to map...

To mitigate global warming, worldwide CO2-emissions have to be cut. Similarly, the shipping industry has to drastically decrease it's emissions. Rules and regulation on emissions are becoming more stringent. Moreover, the public and clients are demanding less pollution from ship operators. While many shipping operators are looking at a suited...

This research focused on the techno-economic implementation of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). Carbon reduction in commercial aviation could be done via four key levers; technological efficiency improvement (aircraft or engine replacement), operational efficiency improvement (air traffic management or airline operations), the implementation of...

This thesis describes the process of selecting different greenhouse gas emission reduction technologies for the application on a redesign of a multi-purpose heavy-lift vessel. Only technologies were considered which did not negatively influence the operability or arrangement of the redesign. The best performing combination of technologies was...

Nowadays environmental issues like the depletion of the natural resources and the pollution of the environment have led many researchers to make new projects about the reuse of waste from construction and demolition again in concrete industry. Among available solutions are the partial replacement of cement with recycled ultrafine particles (RUP)...

Mooring chains are subject to dynamic loads and corrosion. A challenging aspect in assessing the integrity of mooring chains is the presence of marine growth. Marine growth removal is expensive, environmentally damaging, and includes the risk of restarting corrosion process. The focus of this research is on the feasibility of mooring chains...

The International Maritime Organization forecasts that greenhouse gasses produced by ships will increase rapidly in the near future, unless precautions are taken now. This will require all ships to reduce their emissions, especially container vessels which are producing the most emissions. One way of reducing emissions, with existing technology,...

The maritime industry faces more and more restrictions on the amounts of greenhouse gases, and particularly CO2 which the IMO allows to be emitted by ships. Carbon capture technology promises to be able to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions on ships and is most compatiblewith LNG powered vessels by filtering the CO2 from the exhaust gases....

The global battle to reduce greenhouse gases changes many aspects of how we should think of our energy resources. For a large part, the industry is responsible for worldwide energy consumption. In the Netherlands, this share amounts to 41% of total energy production (Compendium voor de Leefomgeving, 2019). The industry is looking into different...

E-commerce has grown rapidly worldwide over the past decade and thus more parcels are shipped into urban areas. The last mile delivery of these parcels into an urban area create big problems such as congestion and pollution. In order to tackle these problems new solutions have been found by either changing the operations of the system or using...

Coastal dunes habitats are in the transition zone of marine and terrestrial ecosystems and therefore have high biodiversity in terms of animal and vegetation species. These species provide important ecosystem services to the human kind. Due to the development and operation of Maasvlakte 2, an increase of nitrogen emission is expected in the...

This research experimentally investigates the effects of an impact event during fatigue loading of a CFRP structure. Open-hole specimens were impacted in-situ during a short interruption of a tension-tension cyclic loading program. The impact was aimed directly below the central hole, with the critical fatigue damage path being left and right of...

The municipal of Amsterdam plans to implement a zero emission (ZE) zone by 2025. A plan is required to implement a battery electric truck (BET) charging infrastructure. To derive at the preferred feasible BET charging infrastructures, the research assesses the available BET, available charging methods, stakeholder perception, and BET energy...

The shipping industry has a notable share in global greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants such as sulphur and nitrogen oxides. Fuel cells and batteries are identified as relatively new technologies for shipping with high potential and hydrogen is also considered as one of the most promising sustainable fuels, especially for smaller...

Decarbonization of the energy sector by switching to low-carbon renewables is inevitable for a sustainable future. However, the intermittent and variable nature of low-carbon renewables, like wind and solar, poses several challenges when integrated into the existing energy grids. This is one of the main factors slowing down the transition to a...

Maharashtra, the second largest state in India in terms of population and area, is a fast-developing economy and meeting its electricity demand is crucial for its economic growth. Currently, power production is causing severe environmental and security issues mainly because of the reliance on coal plants in the state. In order to meet SDG 7 ...

In the context of this thesis, the effect of various diesel-methanol blends in a diesel engine compared to conventional marine diesel oil is investigated by experiments and in-cylinder simulations. The main differences obtained between diesel and methanol are the lower heating value, heat of vaporization and cetane number. During the experiments...

Commercial greenhouse gas emissions from aviation are proliferating, as is the concern among freight carriers to minimize their carbon footprint. From a corporate point of view, the United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization ( ICAO) expects aircraft emissions to triple by 2050, with aviation accounting for 25% of the world's carbon...
