  • EU’s End-of-life Vehicle Rules Stuck in Neutral

    Against a backdrop of stagnant car sales and falling scrap metal prices, car makers and recyclers are gearing up for the implementation of the European Union’s end-of-life vehicle directive. Or are they? The European Union’s controversial end-of-life vehicle (ELV) directive comes into effect this month. But its passage from paper to practice appears to have stalled at a national level as car ...


  • Sustainable engineering management: end-of-life vehicles with recovery in mind

    Growth sustainability requires to lower pollution and raw materials consumption. The paper deals with car end-of-life recovery (reuse, recycle) regulation as new business issue, and outlines modelling and simulation paths, to assess problems in reverse logistics for items collection and process data management. The backward flow (from exhausted items, to useful provisions) is fostered to lower ...

  • The Life Cycle of Rubber

    In this day and age, our society revolves around movement. Cars, planes, buses, motorcycles, trucks, and thousands of other vehicles help to transport us all over the globe. Most of these modes of transportation rely on tires and other rubber products for one main intended purpose; movement. Millions of tires are produced every year to fulfill our transportation needs. Sadly, the production of ...

  • Is The `Beep` Noise Pollution?

    It is rare these days that you can be somewhere without noise pollution intruding on some level. Many natural noises may be welcome; a dawn chorus or waves breaking on the beach, but when it comes to man-made decibels it’s a different matter. Never mind the sounds of cars, ring tones and other noises that we take for granted, have you ever noticed how utterly surrounded we are by the humble ...

  • Midwest contractor turns pollution into profits - Fred Weber

    Ed Moss knows a good thing when he sees one.  When Moss, maintenance manager for the major construction firm of Fred Weber, Inc., first tried out a fuel-saving device on one of the company’s diesel engines, something clicked right away.  Those first test results, conducted on an engine loading limestone at a mine, showed a fuel savings of 33 per cent, Moss said. What’s more, when his ...

  • Environmental sustainability of urban road transport: an integrated analysis for life cycle emission impact

    Despite of significant contributions of urban road transport to global economy and society, it is one of the largest sources of local and global emission impact. In order to address the environmental concerns of urban road transport it is imperative to achieve a holistic understanding of contributory factors causing emissions, which requires a complete look onto its whole life cycle. Previous ...

  • Reverse logistics and resource recovery: modelling car dismantling facilities

    Reverse logistics is addressed as new business issue promoted by the compulsory targets regulation enacted by the EU, to lower pollution and to reduce raw stuffs consumption. The paper gives a survey of the existing legal frame, and suggests the modelling and simulation path to assess the dismantling process. Such path permits the quantitative assessment of the recovery (reuse, recycling) ...

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 ...

  • Modelling the air quality impact of industrial emissions over a valley in Southern Italy

    The aim of this study is to support decision makers and stakeholders in the management of air quality in an industrial area located in a valley in southern Italy, where neither air quality nor meteorological parameters are routinely monitored. The first phase focused on the inventory of emissions through monitored data at stacks, permissions to emit from local authorities, and life cycle ...

  • Real-world and type-approval emission evolution of passenger cars

    The investigation of several passenger car generations with gasoline engines shows that the emissions depend very strongly on the driving cycle. Official type approval cycles allow just very inaccurate predications about their real-world emissions. The measured gasoline vehicles have up to factor 11 higher real-life emissions than in type approval cycles. However, a clear reduction of real-world ...
