NYK TAKES AMMONIA FUEL INITIATIVE

Thursday, November 25, 2021 

Japanese shipping company NYK has participated in an international symposium on clean fuel ammonia held at Japanís National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan).

The event was organised by the Clean Fuel Ammonia Association. At this year’s symposium, the third of its kind, sessions and panel discussions were held under the theme 'Toward Early Social Implementation of the Fuel Ammonia Value Chain' from the perspectives of Current Status and Issues, Supply, and Utilisation.

Tsutomu Yokoyama, general manager of NYK's Green Business Group, took the stage in the Utilisation session to explain the trend toward zero emissions in the shipping industry. He then introduced NYK's zero emissions initiatives and the development of ships equipped with Japan-made ammonia-fuelled engines using the Green Innovation Fund.

In addition, Toshi Nakamura, NYK executive officer, participated in a panel discussion and deepened the discussion among international organisations, industry groups, and companies on the efforts and challenges to establish a fuel ammonia value chain.
