  • Californians dying prematurely from particles in vehicle exhaust

    Every year, up to 24,000 Californians die prematurely because they breathe fine particle pollution over a long period of time, according to research presented this week to the California Air Resources Board. A majority of these deaths occur in highly populated areas around the state, including the South Coast, the San Joaquin Valley and the San Francisco Bay air basins.  All combustion ...

  • 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 ...

  • Bruel & Kjaer introduces Virtual Vehicle Simulators

  • An analysis of France’s climate bill: green deal or great disillusion?

    France has passed a major new bill that will deeply transform the country's environmental laws, including its approach to climate change. But while the outcomes of the measure are promising, a variety of criticisms remain. After an exhausting legislative process, the "Grenelle de l'Environnement," named after the so-called "negotiations of Grenelle" on wages that took place in 1968, ended with ...

  • Van manufacturers must make new models more efficient by 2020

    New vans in the European Union (EU) must become more efficient to meet carbon dioxide targets in 2017 and 2020, according to provisional data published by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The average van sold emitted 180.3 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer (gCO2/km), according to the data, which covers most light commercial vehicles sold in the EU. Current emissions are slightly ...
