Decarbonisation of transport
The ZELLIE project (for Zero Emission Logistique LIEge) will provide concrete solutions to decarbonise transport activities.The ZELLIE project is based on a concept of local production of 5 MW of green hydrogen on the Renory site in order to decarbonise two barges currently operating between Liège and Antwerp and for which direct electrification does not seem technically possible, as well as other heavy logistic uses (trucks).
The production unit will be located in the heart of the Liege Port Authority, which enjoys a prime location at European, national and regional level. The Renory site is a multimodal platform located at the crossroads of the Belgian, German and Dutch motorways and is also easily accessible by heavy duty vehicles.
ZELLIE is an ambitious and innovative project. Indeed, the decarbonisation objectives for inland shipping are high. However, there are still very few projects leading the way to zero emissions for this type of transport, and the project will be a pioneer in Belgium.
