Energy group Shell has revealed plans to back hydrogen fuel cells on the road to shipping’s 2050 decarbonization goals, tagging LNG bunkers as the bridging fuel between that and conventional oil-based bunker fuels.

“We believe liquid hydrogen to be advantaged over other potential zero-emissions fuels for shipping, therefore giving a higher likelihood of success,” it said in its latest report, ‘Decarbonising Shipping: Setting Shell’s Course. ’

The International Maritime Organization has set a goal to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050 and improve the sector’s efficiency by at least 40% by 2030 and by 70% by 2050.
