Diesel vehicles in major markets produce over 50% more NOx than official certification limits indicate. Study links these excess NOx emissions to ~38,000 premature deaths worldwide in 2015—mostly in the EU, China, and India.
Identifies key differences in the regulations governing certification of NOx emissions from diesel cars (Euro 6) and trucks (Euro VI) that help explain differences in their real-world emissions performance. Ultimately, an examination of the HDV regulation reveals insights that could be used to improve the LDV regulation.
Summarizes results from on-road testing of seven Euro 6-regulated gasoline and diesel vehicles carried out by Emissions Analytics between 2015 and 2016 concerning emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and particulates.
Legal note from Défense Terre analyzing the U.S. vehicle emissions regulation and associated guidance documentation and proposing areas where the European Union's type approval framework text could benefit from improved language.
