    Abstract

    Inland waterways are important for the transportation of goods and passengers. A significant contributor to economic development, emissions from vessels using these waterways are contributing to climate change, pollution, and other issues. Ambitious policies to reduce greenhouse gas, SOx, and NOx emissions, require sweeping changes in propulsion and fuel technology. Hydrogen and electricity are recognised as pathways for vessel decarbonisation; however, mismanagement of production may increase overall lifecycle emissions. This study identifies appropriate alternative fuel technologies for inland vessels to mitigate climate change and deliver emission reduction over the fuel lifecycle. A comparative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was performed on marine gas oil (MGO), hydrogen, and electrical propulsion systems, with multiple production pathways for an inland sightseeing barge operating across northwest Europe.
