  • Joint EUCAR/JRC/CONCAWE Study on: Effects of Gasoline Vapour Pressure and Ethanol Content on Evaporative Emissions from Modern Cars

    CONCAWE, EUCAR and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission jointly carried out a major test programme specifically designed to investigate the influence of gasoline vapour pressure and ethanol content on evaporative emissions from modern passenger cars as determined using the current European regulatory test procedure. Breathing losses through the tank vent and fuel permeation are in ...


  • Screening technique to estimate high benzo[a]pyrene concentrations near roads

    The emission factors of benzo[a]pyrene for gasoline cars and for diesel cars were measured by directly collecting the exhaust gas using a portable sampling equipment and became 660 ng km–1 and 1700 ng km–1, respectively. The regression equations to easily evaluate the concentrations at the roadsides and at the crossroads were introduced as the functions of building height, road width, ...

  • BYD F3CNG details Highlights resolve

    BYD oil and gas of hybrid F3CNG models of oil and gas mixed three-box sedan design concepts borrowed from the Japanese, Korean automakers successful development experience and mode. The design concept of the "mm" (ie able to enjoy the interior space to maximize, car machine must occupy a minimum of space). The biggest bright spot of this model is the use of dual-fuel system can be dramatic ...

  • Solidification / Immobilisation of hazardous waste for subterranean storage

    The use of subterranean salt mines for the final storage of inorganic hazardous waste is state of the art in Germany, and in fact most other European countries. However, the technical requirements to prepare the waste in an appropriate way are quite challenging. Over ten years ago econ supplied a plant to a salt mine in eastern Germany. The plant uses econ’s unique batch-wise working mixing ...

  • ESTECH marks twentieth year with new acoustic testing site

    Situated less than 40 km from the centre of Tokyo, the two storey building has a hemi-anechoic chamber, an excitation test room and an associated test preparation room. The excitation test room, which can be flexibly partitioned, contains two structural beds isolated from external vibration. And two cranes capable of lifting up to 2.8 tonnes, for moving heavy structures such as engines, tractor ...

  • Breakthroughs in testing technology as new global player emerges

    Engineers and developers now have a choice of engine testing technologies following the recognition by the United States Federal Register of the BG3 Partial Flow Dilution sampling (PFD) technology developed by Sierra Instruments for engine particulate emissions, R&D and certification. Building on this news, the Monterey, California - based company has also extended its global footprint this ...

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Safety

    Know the Gases, Know the Dangers and Protect Yourself Do you know the differences between carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2)? If you don’t then there are no guarantees your safety measures will be adequate. These two different gases are often mixed up with people becoming confused over which they need to protect against, when and how. ...

  • Evaluating 15 years of transport and environmental policy integration - TERM 2015: Transport indicators tracking progress towards environmental targets in Europe

    The Transport and Environment Reporting Mechanism (TERM) report has been monitoring progress in integrating environmental objectives into transport since 2000. TERM 2015 is launched at the end of the year in which the European Environment Agency (EEA) launched its report European environment: State and outlook 2015 (SOER 2015) (EEA, 2015a). SOER 2015 analyses the state of, trends in and prospects ...

  • Innova`s race against time; the sonic mystery

    What began as a puzzling mystery in the semi-arid scrub-land of Colorado, ended as a race against time for the acoustic specialists of INNOVA (formerly ATCO Noise Management). The Olathe Compression Station, operated by Kinder Morgan’s TransColorado Gas Transmission, is located on a plateau in isolated, canyon-cut Colorado countryside, three km from the nearest ...

  • Black Carbon – the elephant in the room!

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, in this article Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, will demonstrate that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Air Monitors has supplied most of the UK's ambient monitoring network, but Jim will explain why the ...

  • Case study - Coil coater asks...`What carbon footprint?`

    Overview Our planet is getting warmer. At what rate it is occurring or how much human activity has to do with the increasing temperatures is a heated debate. One thing we do know for sure is that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a contributing factor in global warming and humans are responsible for a large portion of these emissions. These days, many individuals and businesses alike are trying ...

  • Shipping Emissions - The Environmental Case for Sea Water Scrubbing

    The romantic image of a luxury liner cruising blue seas amid blue skies and trailing a plume of smoke is too close to the truth for comfort. The emissions from shipping make an increasingly conspicuous contribution to air quality, health and environmental problems of Europe, and indeed, the world. Yet an effective and safe technology to dramatically reduce these emissions is being discouraged, ...
