Environmental aspects of the natural gas sector

The project includes a number of works carried out for the Ministry of Environmental Protection to examine the environmental effects of natural gas as a leading source of alternative transportation fuels, instead of oil.
Electric Vehicles in Israel

Electric Vehicles in Israel

Electrification of the transportation sector serves the goals of reducing oil-dependency, lowering harmful air pollution in densely populated areas and decreasing greenhouse gases emissions, through the superiority of electric drivetrains in energy efficiency, compared to the conventional internal combustion engines. However, one of the main barriers for electric vehicle (EV) adoption remains the charging infrastructure availability.
Activities on Innovation and Urban Planning

Activities on Innovation and Urban Planning

A team from the Neaman Institute, including Prof. Amnon Frenkel, Prof. Shlomo Maital and Dr. Daphne Getz, was part of a group that won a grant awarded by the European Union for research on "Demand-driven Innovation" (PICK-ME). The team was selected to lead the crucial Work Package #1. An innovative method for mapping innovation eco-systems in each participating country, developed by Profs. Frenkel and Maital, was presented to the project participants in Torino, Italy.
A Project for Developing an Infrastructure Corridor between Haifa Port and the Jenin Border Checkpoint

A Project for Developing an Infrastructure Corridor between Haifa Port and the Jenin Border Checkpoint

The goal of this specific project, submitted by the Samuel Neaman Institute as part of the general project, is to develop an effective and sustainable infrastructure corridor between Haifa Port, Gilbo'a Region, and the border crossing point near Jenin, adjacent to which an industrial zone and logistics centers will be built, on both sides of the border.
Green Aviation – Literature Review

Green Aviation – Literature Review

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Ministry of Transport has approached the SamueNeaman Institute to conduct a literature review of the subject of "Green Aviation".

Israel's Role in The Global Bio-Ethanol Market - National Planning and Policy

Biofuels originating from agricultural products are one of the “hottest” issues in the global energy and commodity markets. The political and economical implications of biofuels are significant, especially for industrialized countries, which consume and engage in commerce with energy resources.
Integration of electric and hybrid vehicles in Israel

Integration of electric and hybrid vehicles in Israel's transportation system

This research is conducted within the framework of the government decision of 2011 regarding the operation of a national program to reduce global dependence on oil, and further to another government decision of 2013 regarding the reduction of Israeli dependence on oil for transportation. The research was submitted to the Ministry of National Infrastructure, Water and Energy.
External Benefits of Tunneling - Carmel Tunnels as a Case Study

External Benefits of Tunneling - Carmel Tunnels as a Case Study

This project, which was conducted for Carmelton, the company that operates the Carmel Tunnels, examined the economic and environmental benefits caused directly and indirectly by the use of the Carmel Tunnels as compared to alternative routes in the city of Haifa.
Integration of waste-derived alternative fuels in Israel

Integration of waste-derived alternative fuels in Israel's transportation system

The world's transportation system is almost entirely based on oil-derived fuels, fed into internal combustion engines (ICE). Energy supply and demand markets – especially for transportation – are not economically unfettered and sustainable. According to the IEA, without targeted and active policies greenhouse gases and pollutants emissions from the energy sectors will more than double by 2050, all the while dealing with increasing fuels supply side difficulties and scarcity. The pathway to steer away from this future entails the dissemination of cleaner and more efficient transportation alternatives.
