Burning five times slower than fossil fuels and producing NOx emissions, researchers are invested in developing faster and cleaner combustion systems for green ammonia and exploring retrofit engine technology solutions.

MariNH3 is a new collaborative £5.5m EPSRC-funded initiative investigating the use of ammonia as a fuel for the long-haul shipping industry, led by University of Nottingham.

Programme Director, Prof Al Cairns, at his recent guest lecture to IMarEST’s Midlands Branch, explained the research objectives and latest progress in the drive to achieve ultra-low NOx emissions and optimum diesel-like engine efficiency.
