Freight transport is a crucial component of our society and economy. However, achieving sustainability in this sector is complex, due to a lack of incentives among stakeholders. The heavy-duty road transport sector is struggling to meet European emission standards. To address this issue, a research study examined the impact of combining Battery...

Currently, our society faces a pressing challenge: global warming. The solution lies in the energy transition, which replaces fossil fuels with clean sources. This requires a global effort across all sectors, including shipping. While a significant portion of shipping relies on polluting fuels, the European Union’s Green Deal aims for climate...

Electro-fuels (E-fuels) are a potential zero-carbon fuel option, that are able to reduce emissions from the marine sector. However, e-fuels still face several challenges, as currently, their production costs are high, and the implementation<br/>of e-fuels in the marine sector is still in a research and development phase. Therefore, this study...

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) calls for the maritime industry to restrict its CO2 emissions by −40% (IMO2030) and −70% (IMO2050). This paper answered the following research question: “Which technical, economic and emissions-related conditions predominantly determine the feasibility of a conceptual supply chain of liquid CO2 that...

The design and preliminary estimations of biomass supply chains are essential in matching energy supply to energy demand. This is especially true of novel/future fuels and technologies in large industries. In this paper, a Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) model was formulated to represent biofuel supply chains across Europe for the...

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently discussed the introduction of a new design index called the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII), which is a measure of the total carbon dioxide emissions divided by the amount of cargo carried and by the distance travelled on a one-year basis. In this study, authors have analysed a cruise...

The immense pressure to decarbonise the maritime industry has led to the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) uptake as a marine fuel and the LNG fuelled ships design. As LNG is stored in cryogenic conditions, the heat ingress from the ambient causes the boil-off gas (BOG) production, which, if not controlled, results in the tank overpressure with...

As the world is shifting towards a more sustainable economy, regulation could be implemented to reduce emission from the chemical shipping industry. Confronted by regulation, it is important for shipowners to be able to select the most promising measure or alternative fuel for their specific operations and vessel to comply with such regulation....

To reach the goals of the European Green Deal (CO2 emission reduction of 55% by 2030 and climate neutral by 2050), North-Western Europe has to import sustainable energy as locally produced renewable energy will not be sufficient to meet the total demand. This will be realised by importing green hydrogen from areas with a surplus of renewable...

van Meerkerk, M. (author)
The prospect of stricter national and international emission standards for the shipping industry are a driving force in the search for alternative shipping fuels, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG). However, new challenges arise with the widespread use of LNG. For example, there is a desire to use LNG cargo containment...

As a kind of clean fuel, increasing quantities of natural gas have been transported as liquefied natural gas (LNG) worldwide. The safety of LNG storage has gained the concerns from the public due to the potential severe consequences that may arise from LNG leakage. In this paper, a three-dimensional model with the combination of computational...

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....

Hybrid propulsion and using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as the alternative fuel have been applied on automobiles and some small ships, but research investigating the fuel consumption and emissions over the total voyage of ocean-going cargo ships with a hybrid propulsion and different fuels is limited. This paper tries to fill the knowledge...

This thesis aims in the development of a parametric modelling method for the preliminary ship design based on Knowledge Based Engineering (KBE). The research work was conducted in cooperation with C-Job Naval Architects. Nowadays, parametric models can be seen as the core of the design practice since they facilitate the exploration of the...

Reducing the cost and CO2 emission for the power generation for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) production plant by using inverter based generation is the main challenge posed in this thesis. Both factors can be decreased by using inverter based generation instead of the conventional gas powered power plant for generating the power for a islanded...

The aviation sector is growing every year with a steady pace of 5%. With this growth, the greenhouse emissions can only rise in the future until new innovative aircraft are designed such as electrical aircraft. An interim solution is to switch the fuel from kerosene to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). LNG is much cleaner for the environment, cheaper...

The crises of global warming, air pollution, acid rain and the running out of oil make the investigation into alternative fuel technologies crucial. New technologies are being investigated on a global scale in an attempt to address these problems. This thesis investigates the use of hydrogen-diesel dual-fuel engines and fuel cells. The economic...

Worldwide, drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are required to keep climate change to a more or less acceptable level. As of yet, the shipping industry has found no solution to this problem: it is expected that international shipping will be stuck with fossil fuels for the coming decades. <br/>A promising way to tackle the problem is...

Cutter suction dredgers are a type of hydraulic dredgers often used in areas with hard soil where other types of dredging vessels would be ineffective. As a result of the wide range of type of soil that is being cut a lot of variation is seen in the power demand on the cutter suction dredger's diesel-electric power generation system....
