Aimed at accelerating the transition to carbon neutral shipping, #Maersk announced recently its goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. To achieve this goal, carbon neutral vessels must be commercially viable by 2030, and an acceleration in new innovations and adaption of new technology is required. Shipping needs to learn more about using biofuels in general, as one of the potential solutions that can be implemented in the short and medium term. Thus Maersk, as one of the Case Companies in the #IntelligenceHunt5, focuses on its case based on question: Biofuels: A sustainable, safe and enforceable solution for maritime transport? #IntelligenceHunt5Finals Oslo 7.6.2019 #NorShipping.
