With the intense global focus on climate challenges, various industries need to transition towards reduced or net-zero emissions. The shipping industry accounts for 3% of the global emissions and belongs to the hard-to-abate category as direct electrification is only an option for a low percentage of the total shipping emissions. As such, the use of sustainable bio-based fuels is being considered for use by the shipping sector to contribute to its GHG emissions reduction strategy.

Together MIT Climate and Sustainability Consortium, and the CEM Biofuture Campaign, we explore estimates of sustainable biomass availability to help inform the shipping (and related) industries about the potential for biofuels to contribute to their GHG reduction strategies.
