The inland marine industry is the most cost-efficient method of transporting the non-discretionary commodities which comprise the basic inputs to the United States economy
The Blue Sky Maritime Coalition is comprised of senior leaders across the entire waterborne shipping value chain. Together, Coalition members are committed to accelerating the transition of waterborne transportation towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by jointly developing and executing a roadmap to a commercially viable net-zero emission logistics value chain.
Hydrogen is a promising marine fuel that provides excellent emissions reductions
and can be renewably produced However, logistical challenges have prevented the widespread
adoption of hydrogen as a marine fuel thus far.
In 2021, Maritime Partners formed a joint venture called e1 Marine. e1 marine has developed a technology that produces hydrogen at the point of consumption, thereby eliminating the logistical challenges associated with hydrogen, we believe that e1 Marine’s technology allows hydrogen to be a commercially viable marine fuel.
e1 Marine’s technology is a proven, reliable, cost-competitive material that reduces emissions today and has a clear pathway to zero or negative net emissions in the future.
