Abstract

As the international community strives to mitigate environmental impacts and reduce reliance on fossil fuels, the adoption of green fuels in ports is gaining momentum. Recent studies have highlighted the potential economic benefits associated with green fuel use in this sector, including cost reductions, enhanced efficiency, and improved environmental performance. This paper explores the economic benefits of green fuels for port profitability, considering various economic and environmental factors.
The economic and environmental advantages of green fuels in ports are subject to ongoing debate. However, numerous studies have demonstrated the potential for increased profitability due to reduced emissions and energy consumption. This paper presents an overview of the potential economic benefits of green fuels in the port industry, utilizing different economic models that incorporate varying economic and environmental variables.
