INCORPORATING

JAPANESE PROJECT TO RESEARCH ZERO-CARBON FUEL

Tuesday, September 24, 2019 

Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) has announced a cooperation agreement with the Japanese National Maritime Research Institute to begin R&D on 'combustion of carbon-free fuel' as one of solutions for decarbonisation.

Carbon-free fuel, which in this case is identified as, for example, hydrogen and ammonia,  is a fuel that does not contain carbon atoms and thus does not emit carbon dioxide, and it is expected to reduce or eliminate greenhouse gas (GHG) as a countermeasure against global warming.

Hydrogen energy is seen as a promising energy source in achieving a decarbonized society, and various studies are being conducted about liquefied hydrogen and ammonia and similar fuels.

To realise a decarbonised society and reduce GHG in the shipping industry in order to alleviate global warming, J-ENG says it will "continuously move forward to innovate and provide alternative energy solutions for future".
