Drivers for Zero Emissions in Transport

At the Zero Emission Lab (ZELab) we put our minds to cogenerating a renewable future for heavy-duty transport.

Our mission: climate-neutral and future-proof mobility for people and goods by 2050.

We focus on transport (cargo traffic and the shipping industry) with traditional internal combustion engines that run on sustainable fuels. Therefore, the combination of ultra-efficient internal combustion engines and renewable fuels is key to accelerate GHG emission reduction.

To establish our vision, to plan ahead, and to pave the road towards that future, within the ZELab we are partnering up with the industry (DAF, Shell) and fellow researchers (TNO, Ghent University (Belgium), and Lund University (Sweden)). Within our projects, we work together with many more industrial and academic partners to make the transport energy system clean, flexible, secure, and efficient.
