  • New Crowcon gas detector reduces energy costs

    The new Crowcon Hydra addressable gas detection system provides a novel way of detecting toxic gases from vehicle exhausts, such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), oxides of Nitrogen (NO/NO2) and petrol vapour, in enclosed or underground car parks. Many car parks run ventilator fans continuously, but this is very inefficient and energy intensive. The Crowcon Hydra offers an alternative method of gas ...

  • CO2 emissions from new vehicles in Europe continued to decrease in 2014

    Vehicles sold in the European Union in 2014 were, on average, 2.5% more efficient than those sold the previous year, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The report, which updates the preliminary data published earlier this year, tracks progress towards CO2 emission targets for new passenger cars and vans. According to the EEA report ...

  • Wider gaps between cycle paths and traffic reduce active commuters’ air pollution dose

    Setting cycle and footpaths further back from the road can significantly lower the amount of air pollution that cyclists and pedestrians inhale, suggests new research. While wide gaps are not always practical, the study shows that even small increases in distance could substantially reduce the dose of pollution. ‘Active commuting’ is being promoted in cities across the world. Rather ...

  • Bruel & Kjaer introduces Virtual Vehicle Simulators

    Virtual, in-car testing which allows automotive designers to experience first-hand the noise and vibration environment within vehicles – before they’ve even been created - has arrived with the launch of Bruel & Kjaer’s NVH Vehicle Simulator systems. As a new component of the Bruel & Kjaer sound & vibration data acquisition and analysis platform - PULSE 11.2 - the NVH Vehicle Simulator consists ...

    Enviro Technology will be holding their first ever Air Quality Roadshow at Tower Bridge in London from 8.00am – 4.00pm on Thursday July 12th. The roadshow, which will showcase the latest vehicle and ambient emissions monitoring technology, will be the first of its kind that the company has held in the capital. London has been chosen as the first city to stage the roadshow following the ...

  • Van manufacturers must make new models more efficient by 2020

    New vans in the European Union (EU) must become more efficient to meet carbon dioxide targets in 2017 and 2020, according to provisional data published by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The average van sold emitted 180.3 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer (gCO2/km), according to the data, which covers most light commercial vehicles sold in the EU. Current emissions are slightly ...

  • Harmful traffic pollution falls within Munich low emission zone

    Low emissions zones (LEZs) can substantially reduce local levels of traffic-based air pollution, a new study has shown. Monitoring air pollution in Munich, Germany, researchers found that particulate matter from traffic sources dropped by 60% after implementation of an LEZ. Traffic exhaust is a major source of fine particulate matter, a type of air pollution that has been linked to respiratory ...

  • New England Experienced Fewer Unhealthy Air Quality Days During Summer Ozone Season

    EPA today confirmed that New Englanders experienced a decrease in the number of unhealthy air quality days this year, compared to 2013, and an even greater decrease when compared to 2012. Based on preliminary data collected between April and September 2014, there were 9 days when ozone monitors in New England recorded concentrations above levels considered healthy. By contrast, in 2012 ...

  • Rickshaw research reveals extreme Delhi pollution

    The three-wheeled rickshaw lurched through New Delhi's commuter-clogged streets with an American scientist and several air pollution monitors in the back seat. Car horns blared. A scrappy scooter buzzed by belching black smoke from its tailpipe. One of the monitors spiked. Joshua Apte has alarming findings for anyone who spends time on or near the roads in this city of 25 million. The numbers are ...

  • Atmosphere northern hemisphere has lower self-cleaning capacity than previously thought

    Pollution is being removed more slowly from the atmosphere in the northern hemisphere than previously assumed. An international research team that includes researchers from Wageningen University established that the atmospheric cleaning agent hydroxyl (OH) is found in the same concentrations in the southern and the northern hemisphere. Until now, scientists had assumed that there would be more OH ...

  • Air quality in Europe: pollution levels have dropped, but health concerns remain
