Molten Salt Reactors: the holy grail for maritime decarbonisation?

Case study

Session Location: Maritime and Logistics Theatre

Many argue that alternative fuels will not be able to be scaled and de-risked at the rates needed to reach maritime emission reduction targets. Portable nuclear reactors running on Thorium are being touted as a viable solution for decarbonisation of the shipping industry. Thorium’s 100-year half-life, compared to uranium’s several thousand years half-life is further advancing research in nuclear technology and materials development.

Attendee insights:

Understand the latest technological breakthroughs for nuclear shipping.

Cryogenic Carbon Capture and Ultrasonic Desulphurisation Solutions to meet global emission reduction targets

Case study

Session Location: Maritime and Logistics Theatre

This talk will focus on two areas of activity relevant to marine transportation, decarbonisation and desulfurisation. A possible approach to using cryogenic carbon capture technology to decarbonise the flue gas and store the captured CO2 as a supercritical liquid on-board will be discussed. The second topic will address the conversion of HSFO to VLSFO in a low capex process used to reach IMO 2020 regulations on sulphur content and discuss the techno-economics of this approach. The uODS process is ideal for small to medium refineries that will continue to produce HFO and bunkering facilities as it is low temperature, low pressure, and low capital.

Capturing Carbon Creating Value: Transport applications of circular carbon for the Marine sector and beyond

Presentation

Session Location: Maritime and Logistics Theatre

Carbon capture and utilization technologies can use a variety of abundant, available and low cost feedstocks for production of sustainable fuels and chemicals. Ethanol is a key building block that can be used in both the transport and materials sectors and is currently produced at commercial scale using carbon emissions. Currently used as a road blending fuel and as a feedstock for sustainable aviation fuel via the LanzaJet ATJ Process, ethanol can also be advantageously used in the marine sector. With increasing mandates for lower carbon options across all transportation sectors, the innovations in engine and propulsion systems will enable more opportunities for diversifying the marine fuel mix to include ethanol.
