Decarbonizing Marine Shipping Clean Fuels for a Greener


Bud Streeter will present some of the findings from Clear Seas Centre’s ongoing research on reducing GHGs from marine fuels.


Replacing the current fossil fuels used in ships with cleaner alternatives could provide solutions to the challenge of decarbonizing marine shipping. Ship fuels manufactured using renewable electricity and made purely from water and the gases found in the atmosphere, are being proposed. These include Hydrogen, Ammonia, Methanol and Methane. Clear Seas’ ongoing research on reducing GHGs from marine fuels provides some valuable insights.
