Large, slow speed 2-stroke diesels are the engine of choice in the shipping industry, but have significant emission problems and of course use fossil fuel. It will be interesting to see how Gates' new ship copes with the supply and handling of cryo hydrogen (-253 degrees C) and the problems of hydrogen embrittlement.

(hydrogen burns effectively over a huge range of air to fuel ratios so a small leak can quickly lead to a large fire) and in a consumer vehicle and filling station the safe technology will still have a way to go i believe. A lot of the cryogenic handling technology was developed for liquid fuel rockets but for that cost was no obstacle and it only had to work for a limited time in very tightly controlled conditions
