The transformation of the energy base towards renewably produced fuels is an essential step on the way to climate-neutral shipping. In order to foster this transformation, the BMDV, together with NOW GmbH and the project management organisation VDI VDE IT, has published the funding call “Development of electricity-based fuels and advanced biofuels for maritime applications” (“Entwicklung strombasierter Kraftstoffe und fortschrittlicher Biokraftstoffe für maritime Anwendungen”). The funding call is assigned to the funding guideline for the development of renewable fuels (Förderrichtlinie für die Entwicklung regenerativer Kraftstoffe).
Funding is available for individual and collaborative projects in which concepts and processes for process chains for sustainable renewable marine fuel production are further developed. The fields of development relate to technologies and processes for the production and conditioning of advanced biofuels (including bio-LNG, bio-methanol), green hydrogen, electricity-based fuels (including e-methanol, e-ammonia, SNG), and liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC) for maritime applications.
The deadline for submitting project outlines is 30 April 2023.
Interested parties have the opportunity to learn more about the new funding call and raise their questions in this online seminar on 13.01.2023 (10:30 am –12:00 noon).
We look forward to your participation!
