The four-year EU-funded APOLO project will take a holistic approach to ensuring the commercial viability of ammonia cracking technology that can produce hydrogen onboard short and deepsea vessels.

The APOLO project, (Advanced POwer conversion technoLogies based on Onboard ammonia cracking through novel membrane reactors), got underway on 1 January 2024. The project will develop technology solutions for using ammonia as a hydrogen carrier on commercial ships. It will demonstrate power conversion from commercially available fuel cell systems and will test an ammonia cracker coupled with a novel ammonia engine running on an ammonia/hydrogen blend.
