Study reveals Mexico’s great potential for driving green shipping fuel production

  • Date 20 Sep 2021

Mexico’s potential for renewable energy generation, the location of its ports on busy shipping routes, and strong trading relations make the country well suited as a zero-carbon shipping fuel hub. Effective regulation could make such fuels commercially viable within the decade.
