Integrated transnational policies and practical solutions for an environmentally–friendly Inland Water Transport system in the Danube region

The GREEN DANUBE consortium consisting of 10 highly experienced Project Partners from most of Danube riparian countries and 6 Associated Strategic Partners, international organizations, river commission and national ministries, aims to strengthen environmentally friendly, safe and balanced transport systems by adoption of a three level approach with the following targets:

  • institutional capacity building by active involvement in pollutant emission reduction along the Danube through performing the measurements of emissions,
  • organizational capacity building and cooperation in the Danube sector for investigation & assessment of existing green technologies and best practices,
  • provision of tailor–made innovative solutions and individual capacity building by testing through pilot actions

As a result, the Environmental Information Centres will raise the intensity of cooperation between the Danube riparian countries and will ensure long–term transnational cooperation.

The project activities include:

The capacity consolidation of regulating Authorities on Inland Waterways with regard to compliance with the new standards pertaining to pollutant emissions by:

  • performing a study on present practices and procedures and developing action tools  and
  • developing transnational procedures to determine and comply with pollutant emission  standards;
  • reduction of emissions by using environmentally–friendly technologies by analysing types of engines, lifetime of vessels, fuel consumption and gas emissions of the existing fleets;  
  • elaboration of a transnational strategy to limit pollutant emissions in the Danube corridor.

Consortium: 10 partners from 7 countries and 6 associated strategic partners

Lead Partner:

CERONAV – Centrul Român pentru Pregătirea şi Perfecţionarea Personalului din Transporturi Navale (Romanian Maritime Training Centre), Constanța, România,
