How shipping can become greener

Shipping has been a real "climate polluter" so far. In 2018, shipping caused more CO2 emissions than Germany as a whole.[1] In figures, that's 1.076 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents and 2.76 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.[2] Efforts to reduce climate-damaging emissions are underway.

cruh21 is helping to advance offshore electrolysis in the H2Mare lead project

As part of the BMBF-funded hydrogen lead project H2Mare, cruh21 is working in a network of research and industry on the fundamentals of being able to produce green hydrogen, ammonia and methanol on the high seas. The lead project serves as a model project for the technological breakthrough of the offshore hydrogen economy.

Bringing hydrogen to ship, rail, and road

The ferry port of Sassnitz on the island of Rügen is to be developed into a hydrogen center. The core of the project is the development of a new hydrogen spherical storage tank and a transport test run. The joint project is part of the hydrogen lead project TransHyDE and cruh21 is also involved.

cruh21 among pioneers of the hydrogen economy

The hydrogen lead projects of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research

For Germany to break away from fossil fuels in the long term, we need hydrogen - hundreds of millions of tons annually, to be precise. Imports of this said key element of the energy transition are becoming essential. But part of the demand will also be produced in Germany. No matter which case is considered more closely - without functioning and efficient transport infrastructures there will be no hydrogen economy.
