  • 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 ...

  • Edward Davey letter to the Independent on Sunday on the Emissions Performance Standard

    In setting a limit on the amount of CO2 a plant can emit, the Emissions Performance Standard (EPS) is an important backstop designed to prevent new unabated coal-fired power stations being built ("A black Wednesday for the environment?", 18 March). But it is not designed to prevent new gas-fired power stations. One in five of our ageing power stations is due to close in the next decade ...

  • Australian car emissions standards well below those of Europe and the US

    National standards for car emissions in Australia, even after recently announced Labor policy, would still be weaker than that of the EU and of California. Labor has announced a policy that would require car emissions to have a maximum of 190 grams CO2/kilometre by 2015 and 155 grams/km by 2024 as a starting point for consultation. This represents cuts of 14% to 30% on 2008 levels, ...
