  • Air quality impact of diesel ‘severely underestimated’

    Hydrocarbons are precursors to hazardous air pollutants including ozone and particulate matter. Hydrocarbons from diesel make up over 50% of all hydrocarbons in the air in London, a new study has found. The authors also estimate that they contribute up to half of total ozone production potential in London, and say future air quality control strategies must focus more on these pollutants. Around ...

  • Amid VW scandal, polluted Paris asks if time to dump diesel

    Guidebooks rarely mention it, but Paris is one of the most polluted cities in the rich world. The Eiffel Tower is periodically shrouded in smog, and there's one key culprit: France's disproportionately heavy reliance on diesel fuel. Critics are increasingly questioning the need for diesel vehicles, especially after last week's discovery that Volkswagen tricked drivers worldwide into thinking ...

    To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Galapagos' Islands discovery, Ecuador's President Rafael Correa Monday launched a program to end the use of fossil fuels on the Galapagos by 2015.  The initiative is led by the San Cristobal Wind Project, which erected three wind turbines near the town of El Progresso on San Cristobal Island.  The wind farm is on the island that suffered the worst oil ...

  • EPA to change diesel tests to thwart VW-like cheating

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency plans sweeping changes to the way it tests for diesel emissions after getting duped by clandestine software in Volkswagen cars for seven years. Chris Grundler, head of the EPA's office of transportation and air quality, indicated the agency would add on-road testing to its regimen. VW's sophisticated software allowed its cars to pass tests in the lab and ...

  • Effects of reducing particulate emissions from vehicles

    Vehicles are an important source of particulate matter (PM) pollutants. A new study cautions that reductions in PM exhaust emissions will not necessarily be matched an equal reduction in the toxic effects of emissions on health and the environment. This is important when designing regulations to limit the ecotoxicity of exhaust PM. Incomplete combustion of fuels and the breakdown of lubricants ...

  • Introducing the IFT HC-SCR Emission System

    The IFT HC-SCR Emission System is a single-solution for Tier IV emission compliance, reducing NOx, HC, PM, and CO by over 95%, using diesel fuel as the reductant to the NOx reduction catalytic process. The IFT HC-SCR Emission System also provides real-time emissions monitoring over the Internet for easier and less costly regulation compliance. IFT HC-SCR Advantages over Urea SCR IFT is focused on ...
