krisvanherle marpol Kris Vanherle, Researcher, TM Leuven nfcKris Vanherle is a biochemical engineer and holds a master degree in environmental sciences. After working for a year and a half as a stock and a logistic manager in an assembling company, he is now working for Transport & Mobility Leuven as a researcher. He 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. Kris is co-author of MIRA-MIRA-T 2007 and S 2009 published by the VMM.
