Notes/comments

Environmentally friendly fuels are going to make the transport sector more sustainable. This will mean replacing or adapting petrol stations, trucks and container ships and an enormous logistical transition. Professor Iris Vis of the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen is heading a new research project that will develop sustainable distribution networks for new fuels. Professors Iris Vis and Kees Jan Roodbergen and their team are examining the distribution of LNG and bioLNG as up-and-coming fuels to help the sector comply with new national and European laws on emission reduction.
