Japanese Support for Ammonia Announced

The Japanese government has announced introduction of ammonia into the fuel mix for thermal power generation and shipping from the late 2020s to help achieve carbon neutrality in 2050.

Splash 24/7  has previously reported Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) partnering with Japan Marine United and local class society Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) to attempt commercialization of an ammonia-fueld gas carrier alongside floating storage and a regasification barge. Alongside the national hydrogen strategy released by the Japanese government, it is clear that at both a national and industry level, Japan has yet to fully commit to pursuing either fuel technology to the exclusion of the other.
