Research on the Operation of Commercial Vessels with Compressed Air
MetadataShow full item record
Regarding the reduction of the carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere, this paper is going to present a system of propulsion with compressed air used for medium-sized commercial vessels. In the transport domain, Romania holds a key position at the eastern border of the European Union, a transit area, both in the east-west direction (connection with Asia via the Black Sea), and north-south (from the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean Sea). Three of the priority axes TEN-T cross the territory of Romania. We believe that using compressed air instead of fossil fuels will also determine a fuel economy of approximately 42% leading to the improvement of the companies finances which use these systems.
