Topics / Soot-free non-road vehicles

Although non-road vehicles, such as construction equipment, are often overlooked by policy makers, they can be a very significant source of both particles and NOx. In emission inventories, non-road vehicles are generally second only to heavy-duty vehicles in terms of direct particle emissions and are also responsible for a sizable portion of total transport sector NOx emissions. While emissions standards for non-road vehicles lag heavy-duty standards throughout the world, Stage V standards in Europe will require filters for new non-road engines starting in 2018 and several other regions are working towards adopting or improving non-road emission standards. In addition to national standards, there can be opportunities in local policy to accelerate deployment of soot-free non-road vehicle technologies.
