CMA CGM is teaming up with Singapore’s maritime regulator to collaborate on the development of capabilities and solutions across maritime decarbonisation, digitalisation and innovation.

The initiative with the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) will see the French liner giant explore the use of zero and low-carbon marine fuels such as e-methanol, e-methane and biofuels for commercial shipping.

Research on technologies such as carbon capture solutions is another objective of the tie-up which was formally announced on Friday with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) earlier in the week.
