How using barges can improve the carbon footprint

23 Sep 2021
Collections & Transport Theatre

David Lowe will address some of the burning issues of the day – such as the shortage of lorry drivers (barges are a more efficient use of labour) and de-carbonisation (barges produce far less pollution than lorries). He will also talk about the steps being taken by the industry to reduce engine emissions  further by the use of hydrogen based fuels. He will refer to recent new traffics where the drivers for change have not only been financial but also a desire by the end user to “clean up” their supply chains.
