Omschrijving

The Maritime Innovation Impulse Project (MIIP)is an explorative study into the use of iron powder as a carbon emission free energy carrier for the shipping industry. A major target for this worldwide industry is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 50% by 2050, compared to 2008. Metal fuels show potential as an energy carrier in order to reach this objective.
The purpose of this project is to gain insight in the technical and economic feasibility of iron powder as a recyclable energy carrier for different types of ships. Additionally, an assessment is made of the steps that are needed to realize a full-scale prototype and the further research that is required in order to reach this long-term goal.
The project is executed in cooperation with the following partners:
Maritiem Kennis Centrum (MKC), MARIN, TNO, Allseas, Damen, Royal IHC, Bureau Veritas, KVNR, Wärtsilä, Royal Wagenborg, Spliethoff, Standard Fasel.
Keywords: Metal fuels, alternative (cyclic) energy carriers, clean combustion, emission free shipping
