In addi­tion to devel­op­ing poten­tial ammo­nia-based ferry…

CF08_1: Development of a concept for the emission-free operation of an inland vessel powered by ammonia

Marine propul­sion CF08_1 Project costs: 1.279 T€ Project peri­od: 09/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: The objec­tive of CF08 projects is to out­fit an inland ves­sel as a ‘test vehi­cle’ that uses an ammo­nia-pow­ered inter­nal com­bus­tion engine, a process that includes the instal­la­tion of the nec­es­sary tank, safe­ty and periph­er­al sys­tems onboard the ves­sel. The ammo­nia-pow­ered propul­sion system…

CF07: Development of a functional model for an ammonia-powered sport yacht with a hybrid system consisting of a solid oxide fuel cell and engine

Marine propul­sion CF07 Project costs: 1.470 T€ Project peri­od: 09/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: Sail­ing yachts have always used wind for propul­sion. Today, the inte­ri­or fit­tings offered by most mod­ern sail­ing yachts meet high stan­dards and use elec­tri­cal ener­gy for nav­i­ga­tion, safe­ty, sec­ondary propul­sion and aux­il­iary equip­ment onboard the ship. This ener­gy is pro­vid­ed by fos­sil-based primary…

CAMPFIRE World Café 2020

In line with our roadmap for research and devel­op­ment in the region of North­east Ger­many, cost-opti­mised pro­duc­tion meth­ods for basic inno­va­tions are being devel­oped and imple­ment­ed. This is a pre­req­ui­site for estab­lish­ing decen­tralised syn­the­sis plants that will pro­duce the car­bon-free hydro­gen car­ri­er ammo­nia as an infra­struc­ture and stor­age solu­tion, as well as emis­sion-free propul­sion systems…

Fourth meeting of the CAMPFIRE Advisory Board

At the fourth meet­ing of our advi­so­ry board, which was held on 1 Octo­ber 2020 at Ozea­neum Stral­sund, we pre­sent­ed a sta­tus update on our joint projects. Togeth­er, we con­sid­ered future oppor­tu­ni­ties for our con­sor­tium. We also dis­cussed an acqui­si­tion plan for fur­ther imple­men­ta­tion and for the cre­ation of the basic tools need­ed for technology…

CF05: Electroceramic thin films for the use of ammonia in marine propulsion systems

Thin films CF05 Project costs: 1.193 T€ Project peri­od: 09/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: The con­sor­tium for the col­lab­o­ra­tive project CF05 is devel­op­ing a quick-start mem­brane reac­tor for the pro­duc­tion of hydro­gen from ammo­nia. This is a key hydro­gen tech­nol­o­gy for effi­cient ener­gy con­ver­sion in dif­fer­ent types of fuel cells and engines in the future. In contrast…

CF04: Thin-film-based membrane electrode assemblies for the decentralised synthesis of ammonia by solid-state ammonia synthesis

Thin films CF04 Project costs: 1.934 T€ Project peri­od: 06/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Ker­afol Overview: Inte­grat­ing new elec­tro­ce­ram­ic thin films into ener­gy sys­tems enables the small-scale imple­men­ta­tion of resource-effi­cient direct and flex­i­ble ener­gy con­ver­sion process­es for ammo­nia syn­the­sis. In joint project CF04, part­ners are devel­op­ing high-per­for­mance thin-film-based mem­brane elec­trode units (MEA) for the decen­tralised syn­the­sis of ammonia…

Partner workshop for project category 3: ‘Zero-emission marine propulsion systems’
