In the last week, both LNG and biofuels have gained ground as plausible drivers for reducing emissions broadly across the shipping industry. Don't count on either of them making much headway, though. In fact, don't count on anything to win out.
More accurately, everything will win out. Shipping will grow greener not by one silver bullet solution to everything, but a very wide range of abatement technologies, new fuels, scrubbing, changes to operations, additives - all in a dog's breakfast.
