Short description:
Antwerp is the largest city of the Flemish region in Belgium. The port city – ranking second in Europe – has more than 500,000 inhabitants of 173 nationalities. Antwerp aims to be a sustainable city for people living or working here or those coming to visit. As the largest city in Flanders, it aims to take its responsibility and strives for a healthy and pleasant living environment. The city is completely focused on sustainability and improving its air quality. In this respect, the city is improving the environmentally-friendly nature of its urban transport and managing a low emission zone. In doing so, it is setting a good example by reducing the emissions from its own fleet of vehicles by using, amongst others, alternative fuels such as hydrogen.


Role in the project:

REVIVE offers the possibility to test hydrogen technology as an alternative fuel for existing company vehicles currently operating on diesel. Antwerp will test and demonstrate two waste collection vehicles for a period of 24 months as part of this project. A hydrogen station will also be introduced in the city in 2019 allowing electricity from the waste management firm ISVAG to be transformed into hydrogen using an electrolysis method.
