Projects and articles of Kris Vanherle
ResearcherKris Vanherle is a biochemical engineer and holds a master degree in environmental sciences. Kris has broad expertise in the environmental aspects of transport and has managed several studies for European national governments on behalf of TML. A key research field in which Kris is active, is the quantification of emissions emitted by the various transport modes. To this end he developed and managed various emission models (EMMOSS, TREMOVE, ...). In relation to this, Kris is regularly involved in impact analysis of various measures to reduce environmental impact of transport (eco-taxation, CO2 standards, subsidies for new green technologies, scrappage schemes, ...) based on quantitative model studies. More recently Kris works with citizen science techniques as a new method for the impact analysis of air quality and mobility. In that context he had co-developed Telraam (www.telraam.net), and is CEO of TML's daughter company Rear Window.
Preparatory research on decarbonising the Belgian maritime sector
The maritime shipping sector is responsible for the highest CO2 emissions in Belgian waters. Decarbonising this sector requires many technical and operational measures. TML carried out a preparatory study.

The founding of Rear Window
Telraam actively works with citizens to provide good traffic counts. After a year of preparatory work, the notary established on 27 January this year Rear Window BV, which will carry on the Telraam idea. We spoke briefly with Kris Vanherle, researcher at TML, co-founder and managing director of the new company.
