    There are about 23 different hydrogen and fuel cell boats in existence, and a number of manufacturers are now starting to commercialise both the fuel cell power systems for propulsion as well as conventional engines specifically designed to run on either 100% hydrogen or a combination of conventional fuels and hydrogen.

    Maersk has committed to go 100% carbon neutral by 2050, despite the IMO stipulating that shipping must reach a 50% emissions reduction within this time frame.

    Japanese shipping companies are using synthetic methane, where the carbon is recycled through the system in order to utilise existing refueling infrastructure.

    Green or blue hydrogen is expected to equalise on price by about 2030, according to most industry reports.
