Maersk says vessels will be built by South Koreaโ€™s Hyundai Heavy Industries and have capacity to carry around 16,000 containers. According to the International Energy Agency, in 2019 international shipping was responsible for approximately 2% of โ€œglobal energy-related CO2 emissions." Danish firmย Maerskย said Tuesday it is ordering eight large, ocean-going vessels able to run on what it called โ€œcarbon neutral methanol.โ€ The worldโ€™s largest container shipping firm said the vessels would be built by South Koreaโ€™s Hyundai Heavy Industries and have the capacity to carry around 16,000 containers.

Scientists have found a way to convert methane into methanol at room temperature. Using a common crystal as a catalyst, the technique could eventually reduce methane escaping into the atmosphere by turning it into a useful liquid fuel instead. As a greenhouse gas, methane is 34 times more potent than carbon dioxide, andย levels in the atmosphereย are rising fast. One of the biggest sources is โ€œfugitiveโ€ emissions caused by leaks during extraction, processing, storage or transport of natural gas, which accounts for up toย 3.9 percentย of global greenhouse gas emissions. A possible alternative is to convert the gaseous methane into liquid methanol,...
