Research on the Operation of Commercial Vessels with Compressed Air
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.
