Abstract


Enhancing
environmental safety of road Intertraffic in the border areas of Russia and
Finland applying innovation solutions (Green InterTraffic)


LUT Kouvola shall participate in the project with
the analysis of emissions arising from the use of gas-fueled engines in
transportation (cars, busses, trucks, railways, and sea vessels) as being
compared to traditional diesel and gasoline fueled systems. Organization has
worked for long-time for the sustainability and lower emission issues of
transportation logistics, however, earlier comparisons have been made solely to
electrical powered systems. Currently gas-fueled sea vessels are taken in use
within Finland, and several ones are at building stage (mostly due to strict
environmental legislation of EU on Baltic Sea).

Project timeline: 2018 (autumn)
– 2020 (spring).

Partners: St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and
Industry, St. Petersburg University, Transport Intergration Ltd, LUT Kouvola,
Institute of Radar Meteorology Ltd, Finnish Meteorological Institute
