where we work / Asia

Translate

Asia is home to the world's fastest growing economies and vehicle markets, and is centrally important in the international effort to reduce GHG emissions. Countries like Japan and South Korea have established automobile industries and a long history of air quality regulation. China and India are motorizing their transportation systems so quickly that even large efficiency improvements could be canceled out by the increasing number of vehicles on the road. Throughout the continent, the abundance of two- and three-wheeled vehicles presents a special challenge to regulating air quality. The ICCT works with governments in the region to reduce emissions of both air toxics and greenhouse gases.

Maximizing aircraft fuel efficiency: Don’t skimp on R&D
An interview with Dr. Fay Collier, Associate Director for Flight Strategy, Integrated Aviation Systems Program at NASA Aeronautics and a former Project Manager at NASA Environmentally Responsible Aviation (ERA), on NASA’s contribution to technologies already in use on aircraft flying now, the ERA project, and a new NASA initiative to demonstrate these environmentally responsible aviation technologies.

New energy efficiency target for cars could help Brazil compete in international markets
Aligning Brazil's new-car efficiency target with the European Union’s target would have substantial benefits for consumers. Compared to a car meeting Inovar-Auto's 2017 target, the average new car sold in 2023 could reduce fuel costs more than 4,000 USD over the lifetime of the vehicle, equivalent to 2.4 times the cost of additional vehicle technology.
