At the beginning of the 20th century, the Petroleum Zuid (Petroleum South) site in Antwerp (Belgium) was home to one of the most important petroleum ports in the world, sprecifically for refining fossil fuels.

Today this waterside brownfield has been renamed as the Blue Gate Antwerp, is developed into a water-linked eco-effective industrial park with cluster quay for in- and outbound inland goods flows, plus a zone for smart logistics and city-regional distribution.

The City of Antwerp and the Flemish Region want to attract innovative businesses – both domestic and international - to the site to develop renewable sources of energy.

Inland waterway transport has an excellent energy and carbon record. On new ships, air emissions such as NOx and PM are also radically decreased. The same trend is expected soon for existing vessels.

The use of LNG as transport fuel firmly reduces NOx and particulate emissions by waterway transport. But it becomes important cargo too.
