2018.07.11

Evaluates the costs incurred by manufacturers of diesel engines used in non-road vehicles and equipment for emission reduction technologies needed to comply with increasingly stringent standards.

2018.02.22

Starting January 1, 2021, all new HDVs sold in Mexico will be required to meet the best-in-class, filter-based standards, equivalent to those currently in place in the rest of North America and the European Union. The Euro VI and US 2010 options are introduced in 2019, along with much weaker Euro V and US 2007 options, which are allowed over a two-year transition period. The soot-free standards become the only regulatory option on January 1, 2021.

2018.01.03

Investigated the impacts of updating three standards in Mexico to align with the international best practices employed in the rest of North America: gasoline and diesel sulfur standards, passenger vehicle emissions standards, and truck and bus emissions standards. 

2017.10.23

Presents the proceedings of the of the "Latin America Workshop on Green Freight Programs" held in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina on June 2017. During the three-day event, government officials, industry representatives, and experts discussed and identified challenges, opportunities, potential solutions and next steps to promote the development of green freight programs in Latin America.

2017.10.11

Addresses the opportunities for facilitating, and the barriers to financing, the transition to soot-free urban bus fleets in 20 megacities.

2017.04.14

Informs the next phase of PROCONVE for LD vehicles by assessing important components of PROCONVE L6 and their relative strengths and weaknesses compared with similar programs in the U.S. and the EU.

2017.04.14

Evaluates the effect of Euro VI-equivalent emissions standards on bus system costs in Brazil.

2017.03.27

Evaluates the level of technology adoption, costs, and efficiency improvement associated with alignment with the European Union’s 2021 emissions target of 95 gCO2/km (equivalent to 1.27 MJ/km) for new passenger cars in Brazil in 2023.

2016.11.28

Presents a global strategy to reduce fine particulate (PM2.5) and black carbon emissions from the global fleet of on-road diesel vehicles by identifying 36 countries for immediate action.

2016.03.11
To rectify the implementation and compliance issues associated with P-7 standards for heavy-duty vehicles in Brazil, quickly advancing to the next P-8 phase and aligning it with Euro VI standards is the most effective option.
2016.03.11

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. 

2016.03.01

P-8 standards in Brazil are a highly cost-effective means of reducing the environmental impact of diesel HDVs in Brazil and timely action is of critical importance.

2016.02.03

Describes Peru's current efforts in meeting regulatory fuel requirements and obtaining financing for refinery upgrades.

2015.12.18

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.

2015.10.01

Proposes a rapid, comprehensive policy response not only to deal with defeat devices but also to identify vehicle models with high real-world emissions relative to test-cycle performance and improve current compliance and enforcement programs.

2015.03.02

Evaluates eight vehicle replacement programs from around the world and identifies five best practices in the areas of program design and implementation, as well as fiscal incentives and policies, to serve as guidelines for policymakers.

2014.12.22

Resumen de una nueva propuesta normativa que requerirá que los nuevos vehículos pesados a combustible diesel cumplan con los estándares de emisiones equivalentes a aquellos en los Estados Unidos (EPA 2010) y Europa (Euro VI).

2014.12.22

Synopsis of proposed new standards that would require new heavy-duty diesel vehicles to meet emissions standards equivalent to those in the United States (EPA 2010) and European Union (Euro VI).

2014.08.11

Results, methods, and underlying assumptions of an ICCT analysis conducted to support the decision-making process for updating NOM 044, demonstrating the cost-effectiveness of matching EPA 2010 or Euro VI requirements to reduce the environmental impacts of diesel heavy-duty vehicles.

2014.06.09

Este estudio muestra los resultados de un análisis costo-beneficio hasta el año 2037 de los cambios propuestos a la norma de emisiones de vehículos pesados, la NOM-044 de SEMARNAT.
