Takes a closer look at three potential alternatives for OBD regulatory requirements that can be incorporated into the China 6 proposal. The ICCT recommends adopting CA OBDII with China 6 emission standards.
Under current regulatory standards, the wide commercialization of diesel cars would significantly increase NOX and PM2.5 emissions, contributing to poor air quality and adding 150,000 premature deaths through 2050.
Evaluates the potential air-quality benefits of using shore-based electric generating facilities, as opposed to a ship's own engines, to supply power for operations (such as loading and unloading) while a ship lies berthed in port.
Analyzes and compares new-vehicle type-approval procedures in the EU and U.S. with an eye toward demonstrating how best to align regulatory requirements, customer expectations, and environmental performance.
Emissions from on-road vehicles are a significant cause of air pollution in urban areas. Beijing, where air quality has historically been poor, is taking measures to reduce emissions from the transport sector.
Annual update to ICCT's ranking of U.S. airlines by fuel efficiency on domestic operations. The gap between most- and least-efficient airlines narrowed slightly to 25%, and overall industry fuel efficiency improved by 1.7%.
