CNL investigates hydrogen technologies for Canadian marine sector

Canadian nuclear science and technology organisation Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) will develop an assessment tool to examine clean technologies, such as hydrogen, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the release of other pollutants from marine vessels.

Using its Marine-Zero Fuel™ (MaZeF™) Assessment Tool, CNL will help Canada assess and pursue the use of hydrogen and other clean energy technologies to transition from traditional fuels that are contributing to marine pollution and climate change.

In addition to the vessels themselves, the research will focus on expanding the MaZeF™ Assessment Tool to assess the feasibility of using hydrogen technologies for port-side operations, such as forklifts, cranes and transportation vehicles.

CNL scientists will also examine different technologies that can be used for the production, storage and handling of hydrogen for marine vessels, as part of the three-year project is funding by Transport Canada’s Innovation Centre.
