Transportation and logistics firm Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has said it is exploring the viability of hydrogen as a possible fuel source.

Speaking at the Maritime Transport Efficiency Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, Bud Darr, Executive Vice-President of MSC explained that, as well as hydrogen, the group is also looking into the use of biofuels.
