Dr Juan Perez Torreglosa | eCCoSHIP (project UHU-202051): A New Heat Recovery System to Reduce the Carbon Footprint of Shipping

Sep 20, 2023 | engineering and tech

About this episode

Shipping is a major contributor to climate change, responsible for emitting almost 1 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. If global shipping were a country, it would be the sixth largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world, surpassed only by the USA, China, India, Japan, and Russia. The majority of commercial shipping fleets use high-power diesel engines for propulsion. About half of the energy generated by these diesel engines is lost as heat through the exhaust gases, leading to reduced efficiency and increased emissions per journey. Alongside a multidisciplinary team, Dr Juan Perez Torreglosa of the University of Huelva is exploring how to effectively capture heat energy from exhaust gases, converting it into electricity.
