The number of activities in city logistics is growing rapidly causing an increase in emissions, and a decline in accessibility and safety in cities. Therefore, the Dutch government has introduced GreenDeal Zero-emission city logistics. The goal of this deal is to have 30-40 of the biggest municipalities in the Netherlands have zero-emission city...

The global transport sector currently contributes 23% of carbon dioxide emissions, a figure set to double by 2050 without mitigation efforts. While Scope 3 emissions, notably in container transport, are challenging to address, they constitute over half of all emissions. This study explores cargo owners' perspectives on Scope 3 emissions and...

Strict regulations for carbon emissions from ships are introduced by the IMO and the EU. Various emission mitigation measures and low-emission fuel strategies provide solutions to reduce carbon emissions. This paper compares emission mitigation measures and low-emission fuel strategies for short-sea ships, within the constraints of regulatory...

The construction industry in the Netherlands is taking numerous measures throughout the industry to achieve the possible reduction of CO2 emission or GHG emissions by 2050 to become carbon neutral. Based on the current situation the major focus is usually on the production and construction phase of a building or a civil infrastructure. To meet...

Densely populated areas are major sources of air, soil and water pollution. Agriculture, manufacturing, consumer households and road traffic all have their share. This is particularly true for the country featured in this paper: the Netherlands. Continuous pollution of the air and soil manifests itself as acification, decalcification and...

Increasing demand for passenger services in densely populated urban environments, are currently covered overwhelmingly by private vehicles. Their impact on CO2 emission, present a serious obstacle to the reduction objectives, in the Netherlands alone the target of 45% by 2030, for limiting the global warming to 1.5°C degrees. Autonomous Vehicles...

To mitigate climate change and to reach Dutch targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with 49% by 2030, emissions by the construction industry must be lowered. Developments regarding mass timber construction have increased the potential to do so. This thesis addresses the problem that the opportunity of reducing CO2 emissions by constructing...

The production, processing, and transportation of food, in particular animal-based products, imposes great environmental burden on the planet. The current food supply system often constitutes a considerable part of the total carbon emissions of urban communities in industrialised cities. Urban food production (UFP) is a method that can...

van Oosterhout, Rosalie (author)
CO2 emission of vehicles and its influence on climate change is a widely discussed topic already for many years. New CO2 emission norms for vehicles have been defined based on the 2021 baseline: 15% reduction resulting in 0.09 kg/km for 2025, and 37.5% reduction resulting in 0.069 kg/km for 2030. Both norms are defined under the Worldwide...

By design, excise duties are primarily a tax which serves to generate revenue for the central government. However, when they are placed on fuels they can, from a consumer point of view, be regarded as similar to carbon taxes. Carbon pricing, and carbon taxes in particular, are often championed by experts in relation to reducing carbon emissions....

Nowadays environmental issues like the depletion of the natural resources and the pollution of the environment have led many researchers to make new projects about the reuse of waste from construction and demolition again in concrete industry. Among available solutions are the partial replacement of cement with recycled ultrafine particles (RUP)...

The noncondensable gases in most geothermal resources include CO2 and smaller amounts of other gases. Currently, the worldwide geothermal power is a small sector within the energy industry, and CO2 emissions related to the utilisation of geothermal resources are consequently small. In some countries, however, such as Turkey and Iceland,...

The maritime industry faces more and more restrictions on the amounts of greenhouse gases, and particularly CO2 which the IMO allows to be emitted by ships. Carbon capture technology promises to be able to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions on ships and is most compatiblewith LNG powered vessels by filtering the CO2 from the exhaust gases....

It is widely known that climate change will cause sea level rise and larger river discharges in the close future (because more precipitation during a shorter amount of time will happen). In the Netherlands, the delta works were developed to protect the hinterland from sea-water during storm surge situations. The storm surge...
