The new issue of Ship Technology Global magazine is out now!

We’ve got less than three decades to reach zero, according to the current targets, but is it achievable? In this issue, we look at the role of new alternative fuels in decarbonising the maritime sector, the challenges in building the necessary infrastructure to make them viable and whether one fuel type will come out top, or if the future will be multi-fuel.

Whether you are on a desktop, tablet or smartphone, you can read the magazine for free online.

Elsewhere, we look at the Yemen oil tanker crisis and the environmental risks associated with oil spills in war-torn and disturbed regions. We also profile the logistics infrastructure of Mexico, and how it will need to expand to meet growing demand. Finally, as is customary at this time of year, we look ahead to next year, highlighting the key industry themes we think will dominate the maritime sector in 2024.

For all this and the latest maritime industry news, comment, and analysis from GlobalData, read on. And don’t forget to stay up to date with everything at @ShipTechMag.
