Shipping giant Maersk unveils world’s first vessel using green methanol

Silvia Amaro of CNBC reports on Maersk’s sustainability efforts.

The C3 Take
  • The ship was ordered in 2021 and has two engines, one of which relies on traditional fuels while the other is powered by green methanol.
  • The green methanol will be sourced from biomass, captured carbon, and hydrogen fuel created with renewable power.
  • The ship will emit 100 fewer tons of CO2 per day compared to traditional diesel-powered ships.
  • In order to meet its carbon neutral by 2040 goal, Maersk has ordered 125 more ships which are due to arrive in 2024.

“The new container ship, ordered in 2021, has two engines: one moved by traditional fuels and another run with green methanol — an alternative component, which uses biomass or captured carbon and hydrogen from renewable power. Practically speaking, the new vessel emits 100 tons of carbon dioxide fewer per day compared to diesel-based ships.”
