  • Concentrating emissions

    Researchers at MIT have shown the benefits of a new approach toward eliminating carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions at coal-burning power plants. Their system, called pressurized oxy-fuel combustion, provides a way of separating all of the carbon-dioxide emissions produced by the burning of coal, in the form of a concentrated, pressurized liquid stream. This allows for carbon dioxide sequestration: ...

  • 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 ...

  • Europe to require “Real World” emission tests in 2017

    European auto manufacturers have made considerable progress in reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, but experts at Emissions Analytics note that challenges remain. The European Commission will require “real world” vehicle emission tests beginning in 2017. Emissions approval for passenger cars in Europe will then include mandatory on-the-road tests using a portable emissions ...

  • Makers of gas-guzzling cars cheat emissions tests the most

    Car manufacturers that sell the majority of gas-guzzlers in Europe manipulate fuel economy figures in tests much more than those makers that produce more fuel-efficient vehicles, a new report by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) reveals. The report adds new evidence to a series of recent ...

  • Car emissions: MEPs push for “real-life” test protocol

    The environment committee on Wednesday adopted an update of EU car emission rules, setting limits on certain pollutants including NOx. They call for a new, real-life, emissions test procedure to be enforced by 2017. They also want fuel consumption meter and gear-change indicators fitted to all new cars by 2019. “Public health depends on good air quality, especially in cities where ...

  • Statement following Deutsche Umwelthilfe’s emissions testing on a Opel Zafira

    T&E’s German member Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) commissioned emissions testing on a Opel Zafira 1.6 CDTi (Euro 6b, 6,000 km) with a testing house at the Swiss Berner Fachhochschule. It found that NOx emissions were highly dependent on whether the car was tested on a two- or a ...

  • Car industry: MEPs debated manipulation of exhaust emission tests with the Commission

    MEPs debated the unfolding Volkswagen exhaust emissions scandal on Tuesday, on the basis of a parliamentary question. They asked Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska to clarify whether emission test manipulation took place in Europe. Many speakers said the ongoing scandal endangers the credibility of the whole car sector, and called on the Commission to speed up the introduction of real ...

  • New emissions certification test for cars could be improved, study concludes

    A test currently under development for certifying levels of vehicle emissions may not adequately represent real world driving conditions, a new study suggests. The authors measured emissions during the new Worldwide Light-Duty Test Cycle (WLTC) compared with those in existing driving cycles and highlighted areas where the test could be potentially improved. In the EU, tailpipe emissions from new ...

  • 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.
