Dr Ajith Ambalakatte is a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham's Powertrain Research Centre. His focus on MariNH3 is to understand the fundamentals and application of ammonia in internal combustion engines
Over 80 delegates from industry and academia gathered in Nottingham for the MariNH3 conference on 28 June, where the research team shared updates on the progress that’s been made during the first 12 months of the five-year research programme.
MariNH3 Research Fellows and PhD students came together face to face for the first time for a two-day event at University of Nottingham enabling them to get to know one another, encourage collaboration and to help them define and drive their own career development.
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.
Join the first MariNH3 conference to find out more about the research we are undertaking across each programme theme.
A research programme focused on developing engines for commercial shipping that run on green ammonia to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has been endorsed by H. E. President Mohamed Nasheed, Climate Ambassador for the Climate Vulnerable Forum.
The University of Nottingham is leading a new project to investigate the potential of ammonia to fuel and decarbonise the long-haul shipping industry, and to boost the UK’s powertrain sector.
