Yara Marine Technologies has chosen a winner for the Yara Marine X program: Phoenician Energy’s aluminum-air battery technology for the maritime industry. The container battery concept taps into several recent trends and developments, such as circular economy and electrification of marine vessels.
“We believe this technology may have an important role to play in a greener maritime industry for future generations,” Thomas Koniordos, CEO of Yara Marine Technologies, said.
International and national regulations are pushing for substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, and industry response has been to move toward a substantial electrification of the maritime sector.
