PIONEERS: an ambitious international partnership to reduce GHG emissions
The Port of Montreal is proud to join PIONEERS (PORTable Innovation Open Network for Efficiency and Emissions Reduction Solutions), an ambitious green innovation project led by the Port of Antwerp that channels the efforts of 46 partners.
With its objective to put forward solid solutions for reducing greenhouse gases in ports, the PIONEERS project makes it possible for the range of participants—international ports, terminal operators, freight forwarders, technology developers and public agencies—to work on different projects dealing with all aspects of port operations: clean energy production and supply, sustainable infrastructure design, flow optimization, digital transformation and more.
Its initiatives include: producing renewable energy; deploying electric, hydrogen and methanol vehicles; renovating building and heating networks for energy efficiency; implementing circular economy approaches in infrastructure works; and rolling out digital platforms to promote modal shift and ensure the optimization of vehicle, vessel and container movements.
