California adopts a first-in-the-nation ban on the oldest and dirtiest diesel locomotive engines.
Doing more to abate emissions from diesel fleets can be one of the most critical missions for China in the next decade. The China Mobile Source Environmental Management Annual Report, published by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE), revealed that on-road vehicles emitted 5.82 Mt of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and 69 kt of particulate […]
China’s railroads have significant potential to become the backbone of a modern, low-carbon intermodal freight transportation system.
An overview of strategies that can help China overcome bottlenecks and establish an efficient, clean intermodal freight system.
Achieving India’s net-zero goal will require decarbonizing road transport and success requires overcoming some key barriers in the freight sector.
Analyzes the well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions of long-haul trucks running on diesel and liquefied natural gas.
Would ICCT’s recent transpacific fuel efficiency ranking change if dedicated freighters were taken into account? Did the rankings incorrectly reward airlines for carrying belly freight when putting that cargo on a dedicated freighter would have saved more fuel overall? The numbers show that, since increasing payload to aircraft’s structural maximum increases the fuel efficiency of each flight, belly freight is indeed one weird trick for improving airline efficiency.
At the next G20 Summit in July in Hamburg, Germany can lay the groundwork to achieve substantial energy savings and environmental benefits in three important ways.
Helping (again) to correct some misinformation about the costs of cleaner heavy-truck emission standards in Mexico and the United States.
How will the heavy duty vehicle sector achieve decarbonization in the long term? Perhaps a new technology being developed by Siemens will be part of the answer.
Fifty nation states, private companies, NGOs, IGOs, CSOs endorsed the Global Green Freight Action Plan at the UNSG Climate Summit in NYC—a huge achievement right out of the gate. The full list of endorsers is shown in this interactive map.
