Compiles a high-resolution ship emissions inventory in the Greater Pearl River Delta (GPRD), a heavily populated and prosperous region with heavy ship traffic. Because this traffic contributes to poor local air quality, the Chinese government has identified the GPRD region as a key target for steps to control emissions from ships.
Emissions from the diesel engines of these two key types of non-road mobile sources are expected to be significant, and will potentially have strong negative impacts on local air quality and health in India.
This working paper details the differences in fuel specifications for commercial gasoline and diesel fuels in India and the EU, and assesses potential air pollutant emission impacts of these differences.
Surveys diesel engine technologies, costs, pollutant emissions, and efficiency improvements in a manner that can help inform India's transition to more stringent vehicle emissions standards over the next five years.
Upgrades to Vietnam's first and only refinery, expected to begin production of Euro 5 diesel and gasoline in 2016, will lower the country’s reliance on imports and allow for the domestic production of clean fuel.
Compares official fuel consumption values with real-world performance for 20 popular vehicle models. Officially, fuel consumption gains in these 20 models ranged from 8% to 30%. But on-road measurements indicate that 8 of the 20 showed little to no improvement in real-world fuel efficiency.
Explains the methods used to construct a global database of historical vehicle sales and facilitate the development of sales-based metrics that track progress toward clean vehicle policies and technologies.
