Air emissions reduction in the Adriatic Port City of Ancona

Air pollution in Ancona requires innovative solutions for the reduction of contaminants and harmful emissions according to complexity of a Port City considering traffic towards the city, mobility in and out as well as the production of industrial activities.

Possible solutions to reduce air pollution in Ancona

Solution description

The main pollutants are presented by SOX wich come from ships fossile fuels combustion.

Fuels combustion could be avoided powering the ship with GNL (Liquified Natural Gas).

GNL is produced out to a conversion from CO2, in this way we reduce the emission while converting into methane.

An hybride ship would be powered by a solar panel in the portual area so that it wouldn't pollute when close to the city; pollutants emitted nearby the city represent on of the main source of pollution so this represent the first solution to the first problem.

The hybrid ship would switch to methane powering source as soon as it leaves from the port.

The methane would be produced from a conversion process that take CO2 emitted from industries.

In this way we would solve fossil fuel combustion while converting CO2 into methane in a sustainable, scalable solution.
