“The race to meet the 2050 emissions target in the shipping industry is throwing up all kinds of innovation. The latest comes in the form of the ‘Atomic Battery’ which; apart from ‘close-to-zero emissions’ has the ability to run approximately 30 years before needing to refuel.
Seems too good to be true right? The obvious challenge faced by anything ‘nuclear’ is the negative connotations associated with safety and notable examples in the past of disastrous accidents.
Is public opinion the major barrier to these types of innovation? We are keen to hear others views on the subject. What do you consider to be the most efficient and environmentally friendly way of shipping for the future?”
