The shipping industry can make big savings on infrastructure costs by zoning in on hydrogen as future marine fuel, according to Shell’s global head of shipping.

In an online forum held by the UK Chamber of Shipping, Grahaeme Henderson painted a bright outlook for hydrogen as the costs in developing its supply network could be shared among several industries.

“We see hydrogen as the fuel of the future … [because] most of the other industrial sectors are using hydrogen,” Henderson said on Thursday.
