Biomass is predominantly the major source of energy in the global south. It is the readily available source of energy in global south and is used in rural energy households in the form of wood, charcoal and agricultural residues. However, biomass energy source is not utilised in the most efficient way and hence there is still a gap in achieving...

Hirs Alvarez, Aldo (author)
Currently, the energy transition is a topic for discussion and many organizations are taking measures to reduce the effects of climate change. Armed forces are exempt of these new regulations on the grounds of national security, but some have already started taking steps to reduce the amount of harmful emissions. Due to the high efficiency and...

Garcia Gonzalez, Pedro (author)
Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) systems for aviation applications have been considered for their use as APUs or powertrains, as standalone systems or in combination with gas turbines, and both fueled by reformed Jet-A or by hydrogen. Most existing studies focus on powertrain performance modelling. In this work, traditional tube-and-wing regional...

Herweijer, Lex (author)
In response to climate change, the marine sector is increasingly focused on the energy transition. New marine power plants operating more efficiently and on cleaner fuels are receiving significantly more attention. While the transition to different power plants and fuels results in reduced fossil fuel consumption and emissions, waste heat...

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...

To continue its operations, the marine industry needs to comply with emission regulations. Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) are considered a promising solution, since it can generate energy athigh efficiency and low NOX, SOX and particulate matter emissions. Another advantage of SOFCsis fuel flexibility, meaning several fuels can be applied in...

Ammonia (NH3) may reduce CO2 emissions from the marine industry as it is carbon-free and more energy-dense than hydrogen or batteries. Pure ammonia exhibits poor combustion characteristics, so several researchers have already operated small-scale internal combustion engines (ICEs) with ammonia-hydrogen blends. However, nitrogen oxides NOx and...
