Our March issue
is heavily focused on the amalgam of options currently under investigation to help decarbonise shipping.
Firstly, we look at the joint effort of Swiss technological giant ABB and SINTEF, one of Europe’s largest independent research organisations, to test the viability of fuel cells as an energy source for ship propulsion.
We also talk to non-profit group Transport & Environment about its latest report which singles out three key solutions to displace fossil fuels: batteries, hydrogen and ammonia. The group explains why these technologies – and the correct combination of the three – could represent the best course for cutting emissions in shipping.
Finally, we round up the most effective initiatives in clearing up ports of debris and air pollution, and sit down with the brain behind SpaceTech4Sea, which aims to adapt composite technologies developed for the space industry to accommodate LNG shipping.
