Will hydrogen fuelled trucks eliminate the need for electric highways?


Knowing the present huge efforts from the truck manufacturers to electrify their drivelines this will probably lead to technical leap frogs towards fossil free road transport. Electricity supplied from batteries may well be the main solution in a short-term perspective. Since a couple of years hydrogen and fuel cells seems to become an optional alternative for electricity supply to the electric motor in long haul road transport….

Electric bullet freight trains


Recently the fastest freight train was launched in China. The train manufacturer CRRC in Tangshan have developed an aerodynamic train that can reach a speed of 350 km/h. The previous record for a freight train was 180 km/h, held by Mercitalia in Italy. 85% of the total CRRC train area can be used for freight. […]

The international shipping climate targets


The Marine Environmental Protection Agency, MEPC approved new regulations to cut the carbon intensity of existing ships through technical and operative measures. The draft amendments to the MARPOL convention would require ships to combine a technical and an operational approach to reduce their carbon intensity. This is in line with the ambition of the Initial IMO […]

Development of EU mobility and greenhouse gas targets


The European Commission adopted a white paper in 2011 in order to enhance a competitive transport system ensuring sufficient mobility, removing major barriers in key areas and support growth and employment. At the same time, the aim  was to decrease Europe’s dependence on imported oil and by 2050 cut carbon emissions in transport by 60%. […]

Biofuels for shipping


Transforming shipping towards fossil free solutions is a major challenge since sea traffic by definition occurs without immediate access to fuel supply. Moreover, fuel consumption is significant and break downs can lead to severe risks. Without a reliable and seamless shipping, the global trade will be hampered. Presently the global shipping emits 2 – 3% […]

Hydrogen within road and rail traffic


Electrification of road and rail traffic presently seek new solutions enabled by on-board fuel cells that delivers power to electric motors without emissions of air pollutants and green-house gases. Most challenging has in the past been development of sufficiently energy efficient propulsion solutions in a life cycle perspective. Taking into account production, distribution and storage […]

New regulations on sea transport sulphur emissions from January 1st 2020


Historically heavy bunker oil for ocean transport has contained high levels of Sulphur, being a residual product from crude oil distillation. The ship engine fuel combustion thereby generates emissions of Sulphur dioxide (SO2). Sulphur dioxide is harmful to human health, causing respiratory symptoms and lung disease. In the atmosphere, SO2 contributes to acid rain, which harms […]
