  • EU nations agree on stricter emissions testing for diesel

    European Union nations have reached a tentative deal on tougher emissions tests for diesel cars after the Volkswagen scandal showed previous methods were ineffective. The slow phase-in of the new standards, however, drew fire from environmentalists. Emissions from cars on the road in the EU have been found to be four to five times above the official limits. That's largely because the current ...

  • Mobile monitoring station assesses diesel emissions

    Researchers in Greece are using a Gasmet FTIR multiparameter gas analyzer, deployed in a mobile van (MOBILAB), to undertake exhaust gas analysis for comparison with ambient air quality data. “This enables us to undertake temporal and spatial air quality measurements from within traffic, measuring emissions during different traffic conditions,” says Apostolos Tsakis, from the Aerosol ...

  • EPA investigating VW emissions controls in 2016 diesels

    Volkswagen plans to withdraw applications seeking U.S. emissions certifications for its 2016 model Jettas, Golfs, Passats and Beetles with diesel engines, raising the possibility that an emissions-rigging device similar to earlier models is also included in its new cars. VW has admitted that four-cylinder diesel cars from the 2009 to 2015 model years had software that helped the cars cheat on ...

  • 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 ...

  • Vehicle emissions target aims too low

    Many vehicles adhering to the proposed Euro 5 benchmark - the EU's toughest ever emissions standard - would be considered too dirty for American roads. While it may be easy to dismiss the US as a global eco-villain, Europeans may have something to learn from their gas-guzzling cousins across The Pond when it comes to clean cars. Pressure group the European Federation for Transport and ...

  • Major cities cracking down on vehicle emissions

    Beijing, Berlin, Milan and London welcomed the New Year with progressive new standards, fees and travel restrictions on city drivers that refuse to upgrade to cleaner, more efficient vehicles. Major cities around the world now are adopting similar measures and doing whatever it takes to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and smog produced from vehicles. Although Canada and the United States ...

  • New generation diesel cars are likely to exceed emissions standards on the road

    More Europeans are driving diesel cars, with important implications for vehicle emissions. A new study suggests that diesel cars may emit nitrogen oxides (NOx) at levels far higher than emissions standards, even when considering the newest generation of diesel cars. Part of the problem is that tests of vehicle emissions in the laboratory do not accurately reflect on-road emissions. Owing ...

  • Missouri `Breathe Easy` project receives $947,338 in diesel emission reduction funding

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $947,338 to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) “Breathe Easy” Project, a $1.5 million project to retrofit, repower and replace diesel engines on heavy duty vehicles across the state. MDNR will partner with St. Louis Regional Clean Cities, Mid-America Regional Council in Kansas City, Ozarks Center for ...

  • Volkswagen – EMIT can account for real-world diesel emissions

    Analysis of measurements from the last decade throughout Europe have demonstrated that ambient NOx and NO2concentrations are not decreasing in line with the published emission factors (Carslaw et al. 2011). On-road vehicle testing in the UK has highlighted that ...

  • Less CO2 emissions with new diesel from renewable energy sources

    This week in Berlin, Daimler AG, Deutsche Post DHL, the energy group OMV, the Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG public transportation company, and the Finnish oil company Neste Oil took part in a discussion-oriented event titled “Diesel from renewable sources — A step toward zero-emission transportation?”. At the event, the companies presented the initial results of their joint pilot test project ...

  • EU Adopts World’s First Test for Diesel Car Emissions ‘On the Road’

    EU regulators have today agreed new test procedures that will, for the first time, measure the ‘real world’ emissions of diesel cars under the Euro 6 air quality standard. It will require vehicles to be tested on roads rather than in laboratories, overcoming obsolete tests and ‘cycle beating’ techniques used by carmakers to achieve results in tests many times lower than ...

  • CleanAIR Particulate Filters Protect Miners’ Exposure to Diesel Emissions

    Santa Fe, NM -- Miners have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. While many federal regulations protect miners from on-the-job hazards, it has not always been easy to protect the air they breathe. Now new standards decided on February 9th by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will help miners breathe easier by limiting exposure to diesel emissions, specifically ...


  • U.S. EPA Awards $3.2 Million to Reduce Diesel Emissions in California

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $3,258,639 in Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA) funding to California to reduce diesel, greenhouse gas and black carbon emissions from large polluting diesel sources, such as trucks and buses. “By promoting clean diesel technologies, we can improve air quality, support green jobs, and fight global climate change,” said Jared ...
