    • Renewable Energy Options for Shipping

      The shipping industry plays a critical role in the global economy, carrying approximately 90% of the total tonnage of world’s traded goods. Shipping propulsion has changed radically since the mid-19th century, from the renewable energy of sail power, to the coal power of steamships, to the predominance of heavy fuel oil and marine diesel oil. But renewable energy technologies could transform the global shipping fleet again, at all levels and scales.

      Where will we get our biojet? IRENA at EUBCE 2019

      ICAO, the International Civil Aviation Organisation, has a target to cut carbon emissions in half by 2050.   While efficiency improvements like more fuel-efficient aircraft and better air traffic logistics can bring about half of the emissions reductions required, the other half will have to come through renewable jet fuel.  So if we hope to decarbonise the transport sector, we will need to have large amounts of biojet.
