A Press Release from #NavClimate supporter EFIP confirms that European inland waterway transport, already known for its sustainability record, is moving forward to further improve its performance. It aims to reach an emission reduction of more than 50% by 2030 and to sail zero-emission by 2050 offering climate neutral and zero-pollution mobility.
Inland ports, as enablers of green logistics, are supporting this transition by rolling out alternative fuels infrastructure and market measures. As hubs, inland ports envision connecting climate friendly inland shipping with other sustainable transport modes and logistical solutions.
Five very innovative vessels called at the port of Brussels on 16th October 2019 to showcase the type of technological solutions that will enable the inland sector to cut CO2 and air emissions to a minimum. Technologies included zero-emission options such as battery-electric, gas-electric, ultra clean biofuel drivetrains and hydrogen
