Author | Patricia M. LicerasIf we could compare maritime transport with the economic activity of a specific country, this activity would become the eighth highest emitter of CO2 in the European Union, after the Netherlands. This is according to a recent study conducted by the European NGO Transport and Environment (T&E), which reveals that the emissions of this industry in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Latvia and Estonia in 2018 were similar to or higher than those of the entire fleet of cars in these countries. Emissions that are generated from burning fossil fuels to power the ships’ engines, steam generation or the production of electricity for ancillary systems.Given the significant contribution of maritime transport to emissions that are responsible for global warming and in the midst of a climate emergency, there are initiatives being implemented by professionals from the inland waterway sector that offer innovative solutions- and encouraging perspectives- for the conservation of our planet. They are small scale mini-projects that could be transformed into more advanced and general solutions for the future.A clear example of this is Black Swan, the first electric passenger boat for private and professional cruises down the Seine River in Paris, equipped with “second-life”Renaultbatteries.
