I problem and drivers
I. Problem and Drivers Waterway Transport Fleet

  • Narrowing gap between road transport and IWT regarding air emissions

  • Drivers:

    • Lack of emission regulations for several decades compared to road transport

    • Long serviceablelifetime of IWT enginescompared to road transport

    • Small market for IWT engines


Ii major challenges
II. Major Challenges Waterway Transport Fleet

  • Currentlegislation on emissionsonly applicable to new IWT fleet

  • Focus shouldbewidened to legacyfleet (existingengines)

  • 4 Major pollutants:

    • CO2

    • PM

    • SOx

    • NOx

  • Emission reductionachieved by technical and/or operationalmeasures


Iii to be assessed
III. To be assessed Waterway Transport Fleet

  • Business as usual

  • Measuresatotherlevel or voluntarymeasures:

    • Differentiated port dues/fees

    • Green labelling

    • Speed limits in environmentally sensitive areas

    • Cruise control systems

    • Exchange of information on best practices

    • In parts alreadytaking place

  • Legislativemeasures:

    • More stringent standards for new engines

    • Set emission standards for existingengines

    • Set emission standards for both types of engines

    • Explore specificmeasures to softenfinancial impact


Iv progress to date
IV. Progress to Date Waterway Transport Fleet

  • Study by PLATINA under SWP6.4 – Policy Support on greening the fleet – to be finished by end October 2012

  • Marco Polo II: Provision of support services in the field of inland waterway transport – as of October 2012


V future steps
V. Future Steps Waterway Transport Fleet

  • Impact assessment

    • Report based on findings of PLATINA and Marco Polo

    • To bepresented to the IAB for itsDecember session

    • 3 meetings of Common Expert Group on Reducing the Emissions of the Inland Waterway Transport Fleetuntil end of the year

  • Adoption of proposal(s) for legislativemeasure(s) on emissionreduction in IWT in early 2013
