Examines new policy initiatives for zero-emission vehicles in Mexico, and the additional effort needed.
Explica por qué los argumentos para retrasar la NOM 044 en México no son válidos.
Bien preparados aunque poco dispuestos: los fabricantes de autobuses y camiones piden postergar la adopción de la norma Euro VI en América Latina
Este mes, los grandes fabricantes de autobuses y camiones con presencia en México obtuvieron una prórroga en la última fase de la norma de emisiones NOM-044, equivalente a la norma Euro VI, que los obliga a comercializar vehículos considerablemente menos contaminantes.
Prontos, mas não tão dispostos: fabricantes globais de veículos querem reverter a Euro VI na América Latina
Na semana passada, fabricantes globais de automóveis conseguiram reverter a NOM-044, importante norma mexicana sobre emissões veiculares equivalente à Euro VI.
The NOM-044 and PROCONVE 8 emission standards will save lives in Mexico and Brazil and help slow climate change. What’s needed is implementation without delay.
If the experience in Mexico is any indication, some manufacturers will likely look to weaken and delay the inevitable, rather than embracing and enacting cleaner standards that will make cities more livable, reduce climate pollution, generate tremendous social benefits, and most or all save many thousands of lives throughout the region.
Regulatory action to address CO2 emissions and fuel use from heavy-duty vehicles is accelerating around the world. With that in mind, we’ve been keeping an eye on how the Phase 2 announcement has been covered in markets outside the U.S.
For any city wanting to reduce air pollution from vehicle emissions, buses are an obvious place to start. Mexico City has requested our support, and we will be developing a joint workplan, to kick off with a public workshop in September.
Mexico City just experienced its first air quality alert in more than a decade. The emergency measures being called for aren’t enough to fix the problem. Here’s what should be done.
Helping (again) to correct some misinformation about the costs of cleaner heavy-truck emission standards in Mexico and the United States.
Mexico’s newly announced real-world testing program for diesel vehicles is a great step. Unfortunately, we already know they won’t be clean. So there are other steps to take.
