The experts at Linde Engineering explore the challenges of transforming LNG tanks for use with ammonia for hydrogen.
At the time of writing, the world order of the past three decades appears to be on the verge of a radical change. Particularly in Europe, the search is on for political and technological ideas and solutions to minimise dependence on fossil fuels and thus reduce greenhouse gas emissions. LNG is considered a bridging technology due to its comparably clean combustion and the reduced amount of greenhouse gas emissions compared to other fossil fuels. The German government has published a new law which requests that LNG import terminals in operation beyond 31 December 2043 should only remain in operation with climate-neutral hydrogen and derivatives.
The change of stored product for a cryogenic tank is not unusual. For example, changing liquified oxygen or argon tanks to store liquified nitrogen. The change of service in cryogenic tanks for liquified hydrocarbon gases is well known a...
