End-use technologies

Developing H2 and NH3 technology solutions for use in otherwise hard-to-abate maritime and industrial sectors

Research area lead: Øystein Ulleberg, IFE

Background: The Norwegian maritime fleet is dependent on fossil fuels for propulsion; natural gas is burned to produce high-temperature heat, and coal and coke are used as reducing agents in the production of metals and slags.

Research Area 3 (RA3) aims to develop hydrogen (H2) and ammonia (NH3) technology solutions that can be used to decarbonise maritime and industrial sectors that are otherwise difficult to abate


H2 and NH3 technology solutions can close emission gaps in industries that are otherwise difficult to abate.

Industrial use

WP 3.1 – Industrial heat, and H2 as a reducing agent.

Lead: Halvor Dalaker, SINTEF Industry

Maritime H2/NH3 technologies

WP 3.2 – Fuel-cell stacks and systems, internal combustion engines, and system integration and hybridization.

Lead: Trond Johnsen, SINTEF Ocean

Anticipated results

  • H2 technology to decarbonise hard-to-abate industry
  • Fuel- and power-flexible solutions for a low-emission maritime fleet
