Diesel engines used to power non-road equipment and vehicles, such as agricultural tractors and construction equipment, are a significant source of air pollutant emissions.

The eco-innovations mechanism rewards innovative technologies that produce real-world CO2 savings beyond what is measured over the standardized test cycle during vehicle type approval.

The EEA recently released a preliminary dataset on the CO2 emissions performance of new passenger cars in the EU in 2017. This dataset is used by the European Commission to monitor and evaluate whether manufacturers are in compliance with mandatory CO2 emission targets for passenger cars.

This report assesses progress in 2018 toward implementing the Climate and Clean Air Coalition's (CCAC) global strategy to introduce low-sulfur fuels and cleaner diesel vehicles. The rapid reduction of diesel black carbon emissions is one element of a strategy proposed to reduce near-term climate warming by an average of 0.5°C over 25 years.

Remote sensing of emissions has a number of important characteristics that make it particularly useful for real-world emissions surveillance.

India’s Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has released the final rule for non-road Bharat Stage (CEV/Trem) IV and V emission standards, including stringent emission limits on particulate matter, nitrogen oxide, hydrocarbon, and carbon monoxide.

This position brief makes specific recommendations regarding the adoption of Real Driving Emissions (RDE) testing in India.

A task force constituted by Niti Aayog in a report titled Action Plan for Clean Fuel said that taxation and pricing strategy is needed to provide impetus to cleaner fuels and discouraging the use of polluting ones. Lower taxes on the cleaner fuels are sought and for the purpose, GST can create a level playing field in the country, it said.

The Mexican government published final emissions standards for engines used in heavy-duty trucks and buses and complete heavy-duty vehicles, NOM-044-SEMARNAT-2017 on February 19, 2018.

The 2018 Toyota Camry incorporates eight technology upgrades that are specifically modelled in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Optimization Model for Reducing Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Automobiles (OMEGA) and Lumped Parameter Model (LPM).
