Biofuels: Shipping may struggle with the price of FAME

Greece backs creation of European R&D fund within ETS

Athens has told the European Union that charterers should foot the bill for emissions, arguing that would be consistent with the ‘polluter pays’ principle as they control the operation of a vessel and determine its energy efficiency

Maritime Markets Outlook: Shipping’s big LNG bet

Some of the most powerful voices in shipping are among the most heavily invested in liquefied natural gas as a marine fuel, but the pathway for LNG as a transitional option is far from clear. With the World Bank now urging an end to public policy support for LNG as a bunker fuel and pushing for methane emissions regulations, this month’s edition of the Maritime Markets Outlook examines the implications for those LNG cheerleaders already exposed and analyses the rapidly changing dynamics of transitional fuelling options for shipping

The business model in a zero carbon transition

Companies must accept that decarbonisation is another component they need to incorporate in their business model. To do that successfully they need to practise ‘sustainability applied’

Stakeholder self-interest is damaging industry progress

The dire situation for Indian seafarers has prompted charities and leading industry players to set up an emergency relief fund. This initiative reflects an urgent need for shipping to think as one

Shipowners rank LNG as top fuel in energy transition

Despite concerns over methane slip from the maritime industry’s use of LNG, by emissions profile, the gas still outperforms methanol and ammonia produced using fossil fuels, a study by class society ABS found

Class future lies in confidence, not certainty, says BV

Bureau Veritas is gathering expertise from across the business to explore safety and sustainability issues beyond the confines of maritime

Marine LNG fleet set to expand despite World Bank rejection

Titan LNG has questioned the the lifecycle emissions analysis available for hydrogen and ammonia, pointing out that liquefied natural gas has an established record of evidence backing up its status as an available pathway to decarbonising international shipping

Liner association lambasts ‘defeatist' greens over decarbonisation fund

The World Shipping Council has slammed the ‘defeatist approach’ of environmental groups. The latter have called on industry bodies to drop their pursuit of a research and development fund and asked them instead to support a $100 carbon levy on ships

It’s high time shipping listened to entrepreneurs

The next Lloyd’s List special report asks what entrepreneurs need to succeed in shipping and where the barriers to success lie. Future progress depends on our support for gazelles rather than unicorns
