We can make shipping zero emission and it doesn’t have to be costly, says Klaveness

Norwegian shipowner Torvald Klaveness has been looking at ways to achieve zero emission shipping through its Klaveness Combination Carriers (KCC) concept study. Over the summer, the firm took on four interns from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to further explore how emissions could be lowered without reducing carriers’ transportation capacity or trading flexibility. They...
