EMMOSS was developed for the VMM to determine emissions caused by railway, inland waterways and seagoing vessels, for transport of people as well as goods on Flemish territory. For seagoing vessels this concerns not only emissions at sea but also in harbour emissions (caused by ships manoeuvring or at berth). The emissions of ships in ports have a substantial share in total emissions of maritime transport for Flanders, with important harbours like Ghent, Antwerp and Zeebrugge. The model is used to make a yearly inventory of emissions and to simulate scenarios, taking into account the technological evolutions within the different transport modes.
