Report on a study commissioned by the ICCT and the Verband der Automobilindustrie of fuel efficiency improvements in the heavy-duty vehicle sector from improved trailer and tire designs by application of a new test procedure developed for the European Commission Directorate-General for Climate Action.
Analyzes the causes of high off-cycle NOx emissions from Euro IV/V heavy vehicles that threaten efforts to improve urban ambient air quality in Europe and in other countries that use the Euro regulation as a pattern, and recommends various measures to address the problem.
This paper compares fuel consumption / CO2 values of passenger cars from different sources and aims at quantifying the discrepancy between laboratory type-approval values and real-world values, including a retrospective analysis for the years 2001-2011 to determine if the gap between the two datasets has increased over time. Potential explanations for the discrepancies found are discussed and possible practical solutions for the future outlined.
