Using pure ammonia as fuel for its marine tankers

The world’s first container carrier to run on pure ammonia fuel will pass through.

Yara Clean Ammonia, North Sea Container Line, and Yara International are implementing a project to reduce CO2 emissions significantly by 2030.

It is important to note that global maritime transportation produced approximately 706 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions in 2022. The international marine shipping industry collaboration aims to reduce the planet’s temperature by 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030.

The technical specifications of the Yara Eyde ship have yet to be revealed. However, it is known that the vessel will be operating along the sea route between Norway and Germany. It will perform maritime transport missions between the cities of Oslo, Porsgrunn, Hamburg and Bremerhaven starting from 2026. This will help to reduce third-class exhaust emissions (scope 3) by 11 thousand tons of carbon dioxide annually. Yara International, as a shipping company, is contributing to this cause.

Yara International is a Norwegian chemical company that was founded in 2004 after separating from Norsk Hydro.
