World's 1st Bio-Methanol Container Ship "Laura" Unveiled In Denmark

  • Maersk, the Danish shipping giant, has launched the world's first container ship running on bio-methanol, aiming to reduce its carbon footprint. The ship, named Laura, is expected to cut CO2 emissions by 100 tonnes per day compared to a vessel using fuel oil.
  • Maersk has set a carbon neutrality target for 2040, and the use of green methanol is a key part of their strategy. This fuel is made from waste CO2 and green hydrogen produced using renewable energy.
  • The Laura was inaugurated in a ceremony in Copenhagen's harbor, where European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen christened the ship. Maersk plans to produce green methanol in multiple locations worldwide, with the goal of decarbonizing 10 percent of its fleet by 2030.
