Estimated cost of diesel emissions control technology to meet future Euro VII standards

The European Commission is currently developing the requirements for the upcoming Euro VII standards. This paper assesses the total manufacturing costs of the emissions control systems—including both engine and aftertreatment technologies—that will likely be required to meet these limits. In particular, this study estimates the costs associated with deploying technologies in heavy-duty trucks that enable very low NOx emission levels under cold start and at low load, conditions that are representative of urban driving operation.
