Emissões de gases de efeito estufa do ciclo de vida do hidrogênio como combustível marítimo e custo de produção do hidrogênio verde no Brasil
Em 2018, a Organização Marítima Internacional (IMO) definiu uma estratégia inicial para reduzir pela metade as emissões de gases de efeito estufa (GEE) até 2050 em comparação com os níveis de 2008. Essa estratégia deve ser fortalecida em 2023. Para atingir esse objetivo, são cruciais combustíveis alternativos mais limpos, como o hidrogênio renovável obtido por […]
