i problem and drivers
I. Problem and Drivers
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
