Climate targets do not stop at the shipping industry

Berlin, 27. June 2017 - Climate targets must attract more attention in shipping as well. E-fuels – alternative fuels that can gradually replace heavy fuel oil on ships – will play a particularly important role in this. Manufacturers of large engines and the VDMA are therefore calling for energy transformation in the maritime sector and discussed this in Berlin with representatives from politics and industry at a political evening.
