Green Ammonia as a Maritime Fuel: A Summary of Key Aspects Influencing Market Formation

This report is a key output from the MariNH3 ‘Acceptance’ theme and is the combined result of two work packages that study the legislative and socio-economic aspects of green ammonia technology uptake. Evidence was gathered through secondary materials, expert interviews, and a workshop over a period of ten months.

Whilst there is currently no legislation that directly relates to the use of ammonia as a fuel, this report includes some of the key legislative aspects that will inform future frameworks. Grounded in sustainability and economic geography theory, the report highlights some of the key barriers to the transformation required in the innovation system to enable a functional green ammonia technology market.
