Thrust is when a system expels or accelerates mass in one direction. In our case, a maritime industry propelled towards zero harmful emissions. THRUST stands for Towards Hydrogen-based Renewables Used for Ship Transportation. And it is the name of our world changing maritime program.
How are we going to revolutionize offshore industries?
- Doing fundamental research on ground breaking technologies to catalyze disruptive innovations
- Break the silos between the maritime, energy, offshore and oil- & gas sectors
- Build truly zero-emission energy chains for our waterways
- Enable a hydrogen economy and energy transition at sea
Why is change needed? If the maritime industry were a country, it would be among the top 6 producers of GHGs globally. It emits 1 billion tons of CO2 annually, and seventeen of the largest ships in the world produce as much sulphur emissions as all the world’s cars combined.
