In doing so, they burn through a staggering [250 million tons of fuel] annually…[T]he industry is the world’s sixth-largest source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions…[Because the shipping industry has no] mandatory emissions regulations…[it powers ships with dirty and cheap] heavy fuel oil…[But the United Nations agency that regulates shipping just adopted a strategy to lower emissions] 50 percent by the year 2050…Eco Marine Power’s system] can be outfitted on basically any ship…” click here for more
