  • Four countries back truck CO2 limits, as lorries rival cars in share of emissions

    Four EU countries have called for mandatory fuel economy standards for trucks, documents reveal – as new research by sustainable transport group Transport & Environment (T&E) projects heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) will almost overtake cars as the biggest source of road transport ...

  • Commission Sets Out Strategy to Certify, Report, Monitor and Curb CO2 Emission from Trucks, Buses and Coaches

    Trucks, buses and coaches would use less fuel and emit lower amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) under a strategy adopted by the European Commission today. Such heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) are responsible for around a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU. Without action, HDV emissions in 2030-2050 are projected to remain close to current, ...

  • Could global CO2 emissions drop to zero by 2100? Shell says Yes.

    One might exercise a degree of caution when one of the world's largest fossil fuel energy companies predicts a dramatic decline in CO2 emissions, but Royal Dutch Shell has released two plausible scenarios on possible ways to reach near zero emissions by 2100. The new scenarios explore two possible ways the world's energy system could unfold in the 21st century, with dramatically different ...

  • EC`s research centre opens new CO2 emissions testing laboratory

    European Commissioner for Science and Research, Janez Potočnik, has opened a new facility for testing fuel consumption and emissions of trucks and buses. The new installation, 'VELA 7' at the Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra (Northern Italy), realistically simulates wind drag, tyre/road friction and full drive cycles for real-life articulated lorries of up to 40 tonnes or ...

  • Main climate threat from CO2 sources yet to Be Built

    Scientists have warned that avoiding dangerous climate change this century will require steep cuts in carbon dioxide emissions. New energy-efficient or carbon-free technologies can help, but what about the power plants, cars, trucks, and other fossil-fuel-burning devices already in operation? Unless forced into early retirement, they will emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere for decades to ...

  • Links between obesity, physical activity, transport and CO2 emissions

    A new UK study suggests that there are associations between obesity, physical activity, and levels of CO2 emissions from transport. These associations seem mostly to reflect the fact that obese people tend to travel longer distances by motorised forms of travel. They may also partly reflect less ‘active travel’ by bicycle or walking by obese people. It is estimated that the ...

  • Lost decade of truck fuel economy shows need for EU standards

    New trucks sold in Europe burn the same amount of fuel per km now as they did 13 years ago, according to a new study. Meanwhile, truckmakers are being probed by the European Commission for operating a cartel over much of the same period. Fuel economy standards are needed to accelerate innovation in the ...

  • Transport to become largest source of CO2 emissions if politicians don’t act decisively, UN experts warn

    The latest United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report published today alerts global leaders to the growing threat of uncontrolled transport emissions. The UN's climate panel says that transport is set to become the world’s biggest source of CO2 emissions unless lawmakers take strong action now. The report states: “Without aggressive and sustained policies ...

  • Auto industry pushes hard to reduce CO2 emissions and needs supportive, realistic legislative framework to succeed

    The European automobile industry is proceeding at full pace to reduce further CO2 emissions from its vehicles and is confident to meet legislative targets if a supportive policy and legislative framework is secured. The legislative proposal for limiting CO2 emissions from light commercial vehicles, adopted today by the European Commission and subject to approval by the European Parliament and ...

  • US unveils new lorry fuel economy target; EU left for dust – again

    Today's announcement by US authorities of a target to improve lorry fuel efficiency by 24% by 2027, on top of limits announced in 2011, is a wake-up call to the EU which has failed to regulate heavy-duty vehicles' CO2 emissions. Europe currently only plans to introduce a monitoring scheme. William Todts, transport programme manger at T&E, said: “This is a direct challenge to ...

  • Germany and its luxury carmakers force drivers to spend more on fuel

    European motorists will see their fuel bills increase by €775 over the lifetime of their cars because of weakened CO2 limits agreed today by the 28 European governments [1]. This additional fuel consumption will cause approximately 50 million tonnes of extra CO2 emissions. The deal ratified today overturns a fairly-negotiated agreement struck in June by all European governments. ...

  • EU agrees on safer, cleaner lorries - but by 2022

    The 28 EU governments and the European Parliament last night reached a deal to end brick-shaped lorries, which are inefficient and very dangerous for cyclists and pedestrians. The agreed law gives manufacturers the ability to produce more streamlined, safer and fuel-efficient lorries but, amid heavy lobbying by industry, sets a delay until 2022 [1] before redesigned lorry cabs are allowed on ...
