The International Maritime Organization has committed to slashing total annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050, compared with 2008, and it aims to decarbonise the sector fully by the end of the century. The shipping industry is facing up to the challenge, developing new fuels and stronger, environmentally-friendly practices. But with tighter rules and regulations on both a regional and global level to contend with, agreement on the best approach is not easy

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Has shipping’s nuclear option reached critical mass?

There is a growing body of opinion across shipping that is routinely referring to nuclear, alongside carbon capture technology, as the only real options on the table that will allow shipping to fully decarbonise by 2050. Has the previously fringe option of nuclear-powered ships become sufficiently mainstream for the industry to consider leapfrogging ammonia and hydrogen as a more pragmatic solution?
