Driving the ecosystem towards economically feasible zero-carbon fuels
Engaging with fuel producers and other ZEM ecosystem players in accelerating the development, production and infrastructure of zero-carbon fuels. The possibilities include biofuels, ammonia, hydrogen, and hydrogen derivates as well as carbon capture and storage and utilisation (CCUS) to produce synthetic fuels.
Main objective: Find the most suitable Zero Carbon or negative carbon fuel possibilities considering the available engine technologies, fuel production.
List of important research topics:
- Develop carbon capture, storage and utilization technologies especially to carbon neutral fuels resulting in negative carbon footprint
- Green hydrogen production technologies with lowest possible levelized cost
- Green ammonia production technologies with lowest possible levelized cost
- Hydrogen carriers for easier storage and transport
- Alternative feedstock for biofuels (liquid and gaseous)
- Blending of bio and synthetic fuels

Research themes in the spotlight: Making the production of green fuels economically feasible
Kenneth Widell from Wärtsilä leads one of the ZEM research themes which focuses on exploring the ways to make the operations in the production of zero-carbon fuels a feasible business. We discussed with Widell about the potential partners of this research theme and its ambitious objectives.Read article Research themes in the spotlight: Making the production of green fuels economically feasible
