Venetian ports to reduce emissions along the Maritime Silk Road

July 11, 2019


Abstract : The president of the Northern Adriatic port authority, Pino Musolino, went to China upon invitation of the provincial authorities of the ports of the Zhejiang region which includes the ports of Ningbo and Zhoushan, key stops over along the Maritime Silk Road that extends up to Italy.

MILAN, July 10 (Class Editori) – Reducing environmental impact of the maritime traffic by increasing maritime connections between the Far East and Europe through the Northern Adriatic sea. “The right intermodal development of the Maritime Silk Road will allow to decarbonise the logistics chain, reducing over 100 kg of the CO2 produced by each container handled through the upper Adriatic rather than through the Northern Range”, explained Pino Musolino Musolino, president of the Port Authority Authority of the Northern Adriatic Sea, in Ningbo to participate at the fifth edition of the International Cooperation Forum for Maritime Silk Roads. “Sustainable development must become a driving concept in port activity planning and the involvement of port cities is a fundamental step to improve relations with residents in terms of collaborative development. Ports must use renewable energy sources and biofuels, which will have to implement digital infrastructures more and more and increase intermodal connections that exploit rail transport and inland waterways”.

Musolino, the only Italian to take part in the thematic round table dedicated to the sustainable development of maritime roads, will bring the experience of the Venetian port which, as the primary hub of the European infrastructure network TEN-T, is one of the main points of contact with Asia in the context of the Belt & Road Initiative.

This approach aims to create added value for the reference territory and to support Veneto's industrial production. The results have begun to emerge in recent months with the reconfirmation of the oceanic trafficking operated by the Ocean Alliance consortium that connects the Far East with the Lagoon on a monthly basis; the signing of a MoU with the Piraeus Port Authority (Chinese-led) and the activation of a weekly Piraeus-Venice feeder connection with Cosco Shipping. The forum in Ninbo is also seen as an opportunity to strengthen relations with leading international shipping players already involved in collaborative relationships with Venetian ports and to establish new relationships.
