The CCNR will ensure that in 2050 inland ships do not emit any emissions. A PEM fuel cell system running on pure hydrogen could be a solution. However, the new system imposes some difficulties on the design of the inland ship. A calculation model is created to evaluate inland ships with this system and research these difficulties. The...

The demand for air travel is increasing as more people gain access to commercial aviation. As the current generation of aircraft makes use of fossil fuel combustion, this growth results in an increase in the global emissions. This is at odds with the worldwide efforts of reducing the adverse effects of climate change. Therefore, advanced...

This study investigates the feasibility of electricity production in a solid oxide fuel cell using methane recovered from groundwater as the fuel. Methane must be removed from groundwater for the production of drinking water to, amongst others, avoid bacterial regrowth. Instead of releasing methane to the atmosphere or converting it to carbon...

Future national electricity, heating, cooling and transport systems need to reach zero emissions. Significant numbers of back-up power plants as well as large-scale energy storage capacity are required to guarantee the reliability of energy supply in 100 percent renewable energy systems. Electricity can be partially converted into hydrogen,...

Modern marine diesel engines operating on conventional marine fuels are unable to further reduce the adverse impact of ship emissions on the environment. Integration of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) and internal combustion engine (ICE) equipped with an underwater exhaust (UWE) can provide the opportunity for mitigating ship emissions and...

Traditionally, ships are powered by fossil fuels in combustion engines, causing 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Alternative installations have yet to prove their reliability and are currently not as cheap or technological ready. <br/>To enable ship-owners to prepare their ship for the future, but postpone their decision on which...

The shipping industry contributes significantly to the global greenhouse gas emissions due to the use of cheap fossil fuels. The booming cruise ship industry is forced to reduce the emitted greenhouse gases and emission of carbon dioxide to be able to access remote areas with higher restrictions and to comply with upcoming regulations. Fuel...

The constant pressure on the maritime sector to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions has led the shipping industry to search for alternatives, such as zero-emissions propulsion systems, which would allow meeting the 2050 target imposed by International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulation. Fuel cells have demonstrated to substantially...

The concept of coproduction has been explored in combined heat and power applications. It is a method of improving the efficiency of the energy generating system by utilising waste heat. In the coming years hydrogen is expected to play an important role in decarbonization as it does not emit greenhouse gas at the point of application. Hydrogen...

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...

Global endeavors to reduce emissions in the shipping industry are accelerating the interest in fuel cell systems. This paper explores the application of different fuel cell types (LT-PEMFC, HT-PEMFC and SOFC) in combination with different fuels (LH2, LNG,MeOH and NH3) in expedition cruise ships. An impact model is developed for the first design...

Transport sector CO2 emissions are on the rise and responsible for nearly 30% of the EU’s total CO2 emissions (European Parliament,2019). An attractive way to reduce the CO2 emissions by transport is by changing the fuel used. Hydrogen is expected to play a key role in a clean, secure and affordable energy future (IEA). However, a clean,...

One of the goals outlined during the Paris Agreement in 2015 aimed at 'holding the increase in global average temperature to well below 2C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5C'. In conjunction with this, the Klimaatakkord of the Netherlands aims to 'reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the...

We have set out to develop a drone, based on the existing Delftacopter, capable of soil monitoring via LiDAR remote sensing. The battery was to be replaced by a fuel cell system in order to extend the range threefold to 180km. Unfortunately, the ultimate design is likely unfeasible. Agriculture requires healthy soil and monitoring soil health is...

Today’s renewables, wind and solar power, have a fluctuating nature, making the grid less stable.However, with the increasing share of intermittent sources of renewable power, novel options have to be created to stabilize the power grid. One of these options is energy storage via the conversion of excess power to hydrogen, during periods of high...

As a result of the Paris Agreement, energy technologies require to shift from fossil fuel based to carbon neutral. In 2015, the maritime sector was responsible for 2.6 % of the global CO2 emissions. The combination of the solid oxide fuel cell fueled by sustainable synthesized ammonia is seen as a potential solution to<br/>reduce emissions....

Energy storage systems are an emerging field of interest for the future of electrical grids. With the rapid growth of renewable but intermittent sources of electricity, energy storage systems can help smooth the variations, making the grid more stable and reducing the need for maintaining an overcapacity of power production infrastructure. Among...
