Logistics und Infrastructure CF10_1
Project duration: 10/2021–09/2024
Aim of project:
In order to be able to use green ammonia as a transport and storage solution for green hydrogen, an efficient infrastructure and a logistics concept geared to the specific framework conditions are required. The aim of the “Logistics and Infrastructure” sub-project is therefore to develop an economical, sustainable and ecological logistics and infrastructure concept and to define and investigate associated future scenarios for the transport of green ammonia (NH3). In this context, the needs, for example from industry and transport, as well as the already existing and future required sea- and land-based transport facilities, storage, bunkering and transhipment structures will be analyzed. In addition, the concept will be based on the evaluation of different scenarios and configurations with regard to the Germany-wide distribution of NH3 and the associated key figures determined by means of a logistics simulation. The logistics simulation can thus be used to generate essential system knowledge for the construction and coupling of the energy infrastructures. The results will be used to estimate the contribution of ammonia as a transport and storage solution for green hydrogen in achieving the climate targets of the German government and the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015. On this basis, recommendations for action for external stakeholders as well as safety-related prerequisites will be developed. Since the overarching implementation project C “CAMPFIRE” maps the entire value chain, the overarching sub-project “Logistics and Infrastructure” serves as an essential basis for achieving the goals of the overall project.
