Where we stand
In CLINSH, public and private partners from four European countries are working together to improve air quality in urban areas along waterways. Through real-time measurements we are demonstrating the effectiveness of emission reducing techniques and alternative fuels on a fleet of more than thirty participating ships. CLINSH is also demonstrating the benefits of onshore power supply. At our mid-term conference we would like to share our first results and explore with you opportunities to 'green' the fleet. What can your contribution be?
What we are working on
The inland shipping sector is of great importance for the European economy. It can play an important role in meeting the growing demand for transportation. Moving goods and people by ship helps to reduce road congestion. A typical inland waterways vessel can carry the equivalent load of up to sixty 44 tonne trucks. Compared to road transportation, inland shipping is already more environmentally sustainable. If we want to keep that way, we have to take action now. That is the aim of CLINSH, but we need your help. Let's inform and inspire each other for the future. Together we can make a difference.
On behalf of the CLINSH project team, the Flemish government cordially invites you to attend the Clean Inland Shipping mid-term conference in Brussels on 13 March 2019.
