    Wind propulsion systems will power ships and cut emissions

    Introduction The maritime industry is also evolving to fight climate change and global warming. One way of doing this has been to research and implement renewable energy sources to propel and power ships. Wind propulsion systems are an option among several others to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and associated emissions. While this technology has […]

    Zero Carbon Emission Ships – Achievable or a Pipe Dream?

    Introduction 90% of world trade occurs through the sea. Compared to other modes of transport, shipping is 80% cheaper and produces relatively less carbon emissions. But the sheer scale at which shipping operates makes it a contender for carbon emissions reductions as any optimizations can have massive effects. In addition to ships, optimizations are possible […]
