Acquisition of a motor lower in emission (compared to the conventional diesel engine)
Measures for pollutant reduction (in particular, the installation of catalysts, particle filters, fuel-water-emulsion technology and combined exhaust gas reduction systems)
Measures to improve the energy efficiency (particularly measures to reduce the fuel consumption, e.g. installation of diesel and electric gas motors)
Measures to reduce noise emissions (above all, construction measures, which lead to a reduction of air and structure-borne sound emissions)
Rate of co-financing and conditions
The eligible expenses are basically calculated as a flat rate: The basis of assessment are the additional expenditures for motors lower in emission (depending on the engine power) or the expenses for the acquisition / installation of a fuel-water emulsion facility (FWE- facility)
Funding rate: 30 % to 70 %, at maximum, of the eligible expenses (depending on the supported object, the size of company and the area of support)
Other important information
The safety and easiness of the shipping traffic shall not be affected by the intended measure.
