SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT, A WORKABLE CHALLENGE

2015.04.16

A Basque consortium, with participation from TECNALIA, among others, designs a new tool to improve the sustainability of the transport sector, responsible for 25% of greenhouse gases.

Transport is responsible for a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe; therefore the European Commission has developed several strategies and directives aimed at reducing dependency on oil and reducing the emission of gases caused by transport, resulting in an increase in air quality in cities.

There is no single fuel solution for the future and therefore other options have to be explored based on a global combination of alternative fuels. To do this, the BIOLCA tool has been developed which contributes to the determination, selection and promotion of more sustainable fuels through a Basque consortium in which TECNALIA takes part

Through BIOLCA, we can assess the environmental, social and economic impacts of the different fuels and biofuels.

Furthermore, by reducing the environmental, social and economic impacts, the sustainability of the transport sector has been promoted and the public administration provided with a means to assess different fuels for the purposes of regulating their use while promoting the more sustainable ones.

Through positive pilot projects carried out with the Bilbao Town Hall and Cespa, it has been shown as a great decision-making tool relating to the use of fuels.
