SAVING FUEL AND EMISSIONS FROM MARITIME TRANSPORT IN THE ADRIATIC REGION

SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT

THE ADRIATIC REGION SHOWS CONSIDERABLE DISPARITIES IN EAST-WEST MOBILITY PATTERNS. THE SOUTHERN EDGE IN PARTICULAR DOES NOT ALLOW DIRECT TERRESTRIAL CONNECTIONS AND IS SCARCELY SERVED BY TEN-T CORRIDORS, HAMPERING THE MOBILITY OF BOTH FREIGHTS AND PASSENGERS. FERRY ROUTES DIRECTLY CONNECT JUST A LIMITED NUMBER OF PORTS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BASIN, FORCING LONGER JOURNEY LEGS BY THE OTHER TRANSPORT MODALITIES. THIS DOES NOT ONLY COME AT THE COSTS OF PASSENGER COMFORT AND TRAVEL TIME, BUT ALSO OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, AS THE OTHER TRANSPORT MODALITIES TYPICALLY HAVE A STRONGER CARBON FOOTPRINT THAN THE MARITIME ONE. AT THE SAME TIME, RECENT EU LEGISLATION REQUIRES LARGE VESSELS TO DETAIL MONITOR, REPORT AND VERIFY (MRV) OWN CO2 EMISSIONS (DIRECTIVE 757/2015). THIS WILL BE A PRELIMINARY STAGE IN VIEW OF SETTING REALISTIC TARGETS IN TERMS OF GREENHOUSE GASES EMISSION PRICING. THIS APPROACH IS IN LINE WITH THE DIRECTION SHOWN BY EU MACRO-REGIONAL STRATEGIES SUCH AS THE EUSAIR, EU2020, AND S
