Argonne National Laboratory Is Steering Toward Cleaner Shipping

Argonne National Laboratory Is Steering Toward Cleaner Shipping

January 9, 2022 |

In Illinois, new research from scientists at Argonne National Laboratory suggests that swapping heavy fuel oil with fuels made from wood waste, waste fats, oils, and greases could drastically cut planet-warming emissions from the shipping industry by 40% to 93%. The team also found that cleaner biofuels could be cost-effective after considering credits, like those […]
