Container carrier APL announced that its fleet has achieved a 47.4% reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per container transported per kilometre in 2018, compared to its base level in 2009.

Amid an increasing introduction of alternative energy sources to power ships on the back of environmental regulations, MAN Energy Solutions is seeing potential in the use of synthetic bunker fuels, which can be achieved with the use of its Power-to-X technology.

A new study on how vessels can achieve zero emissions has been released by Lloyd’s Register (LR) and University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS), showing what is needed for shipping as it heads toward the IMO 2050 greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction strategy.

Maersk has set out a vision to achieve zero carbon dioxide emission by 2050, with an intermediate goal of having carbon neutral vessels commercially viable by 2030.

DNV GL chief Remi Eriksen says that the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 50% carbon reduction for shipping is ambitious but not unachievable.
