Working towards decarbonization

At Eltronic FuelTech, we already develop solutions making it possible for ships to run on fuels like LNG, LPG and Methanol and we are continuously looking into the market for new fuel opportunities.

A new chapter for the maritime industry

The shipping industry is responsible for transporting over 95% of all goods traded around the world today. The high levels of pollution from the maritime industry caused by the combustion of heavy fuels emits high levels of SOx, NOx and CO2. Therefore, there has been an increased focus on minimizing the emissions coming from heavy fuel shipping throughout the recent years.

With the ambitious climate goals settled in the Paris Agreement from 2015, where the total annual of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions from international shipping should be reduced by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008, it is vital to look at other alternatives to heavy fuels.

Among all fuel alternatives under discussion, LNG, LPG, methanol, and other power-to-fuel solutions have been identified as the most promising alternative fuels for shipping towards 2050, as it reduces emissions significantly. Furthermore, Power-2-x-2-power is an essential and very interesting concept to investigate, as it is a flexible and effective way to control the carbon footprint.

Energy with a low environmental impact

Power-2-x-2-power is a transformation concept, using technology to convert electricity made from wind turbines or solar power into carbon-neutral synthetic fuels through electrolysis, which can then be used in other sectors or be stored until needed.

The X in Power-2-x-2-power refers to the numerous possibilities for converting renewable energy into gases such as hydrogen or methane (power-to-gas) or liquids like methanol or ammonia (power-to-liquid), which among other things, can be used for vessel propulsion.

X-2-power: We are realizing fuel potentials

At Eltronic FuelTech, we have through the last decade developed integrated maritime technologies enabling ships to run on greener fuels like methanol, LNG, LPG and soon also ammonia. With our technology, we ensure that the “X” can be utilized within the maritime industry when talking about x-2-power – and through persistence we’ve made tomorrow a reality today.

Taking responsibility towards a fossil-free future

LNG: The first step towards a carbon-free future

Using natural gas is the first step towards a less carbon-intense future. It is the fossil fuel with the lowest emissions and is therefore particularly interesting in light of global emission targets.

LNG significantly reduces or eliminates emissions of SOx and particulate matter. The reduction of NOx emissions depends on engine technology, but is typically well within the strictest International Maritime Organization NOx Tier III requirements in Emission Control Areas.

Methanol: A green marine fuel

Methanol is already an existing and recognized fuel within the maritime sector, and when running on methanol produced from renewable sources, the GHG is significantly reduced. Additionally, the methanol eliminates NOx, SOx, and particle emissions ensuring an environmentally friendly operation.

Ammonia: A zero carbon emission fuel

Ammonia is interesting as it is an energy carrier that does not contain carbon, and whose combustion therefore does not produce CO2. Similarly, its production from electricity doesn’t require a carbon-based source, while its production is infinitely scalable.

Tomorrow Within Reach

Our focus is helping you reduce fuel emissions through the use of alternative fuels for greater worldwide sustainability. We know that we can achieve a more sustainable tomorrow, because we’ve engineered the technology that’s out there making it possible. And as new fuels come into play, we’ll be there with the solutions that keeps the vessels sailing even more sustainably.

Mission, vision & values

Our values, vision, and mission are a grated part of who we are. They form the basis of our everyday work and they guide us in the way we work with each other, our customers, and partners.
