MARINE ALTERNATIVE FUELS

In the maritime industry, the shift towards marine alternative fuels has become a pivotal focus, driven by stringent environmental regulations and the global imperative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The prohibition of ships powered by heavy fuel oil from entering Emission Control Areas (ECAs) since 2020, alongside the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) rigorous emission limits, has propelled the search for and implementation of cleaner, sustainable fuel options. Peroni Pompe, with its advanced pumping solutions, is at the forefront of supporting this transition, offering a range of pumps designed for the efficient handling and injection of alternative marine fuels such as Methanol, Ammonia and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).

Methanol

Methanol is a promising option for decarbonizing the maritime sector. Methanol is a liquid fuel that can be produced from various renewable sources, such as biomass, biogas, or hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Methanol has a lower energy density than conventional fuels, but it also has a lower flash point and viscosity, which simplifies storage and handling. Methanol can be used in dual-fuel engines with minor modifications, or in dedicated methanol engines with higher efficiency and lower emissions. Methanol combustion produces water, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, which can be further reduced by using catalytic converters or exhaust gas recirculation systems.

Capacity: 3 m3/h - Delivery Pressure: 700 bar -

Ammonia

The maritime industry is increasingly focusing on ammonia as a potential zero-carbon fuel. When combusted, ammonia produces only water and nitrogen oxides, the latter of which can be treated using SCR catalytic converters similar to those in diesel vehicles. The key to ammonia's environmental sustainability lies in the production of "green ammonia" through renewable energy sources. Given ammonia's high toxicity and environmental hazards, the deployment of safe process technology and hermetically sealed systems is crucial.

LPG

Dual-fuel engines, capable of alternating between heavy fuel oil and gases like LPG, have emerged as a viable solution for reducing toxic exhaust emissions. LPG, a byproduct of oil and gas exploration and refining, comprises mainly propane and butane. It liquifies under normal pressure conditions at around -20°C, facilitating easier transport, storage, and cooling. Moreover, LPG's lower carbon content results in approximately 10% less CO2 emissions during combustion compared to heavy fuel oil, making it an attractive alternative for maritime propulsion.
