Vehicle and Emission Control System Technology The technology used for emission control in cars changed rapidly in the s as the automotive industry spent considerable re- search and development funds to meet the stringent emission standards originally set.

Concern about auto shredder emissions is not a new issue, but it is a growing one. Shredding automobiles creates very fine particles of dirt and dust that can become airborne. European countries have long-established guidelines.

In the U.S., government scrutiny of auto shredder emissions varies from state to state and city to : John Mccurry. This report provides data on the fuel economy, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and technology trends of new light-duty vehicles (cars, minivans, sport utility vehicles, and pickup trucks) for model years to present in the United States.

Bymost new cars sold in the U.S. were so equipped, and PCV quickly became standard equipment on all vehicles worldwide. [2] The first legislated exhaust (tailpipe) emission standards were promulgated by the State of California for model year for cars sold in that state, followed by the United States as a whole in model year Tier 2's phase-in period was from model years '07 for cars and trucks.

Every successive model year within this period required that an additional 25 percent of an automaker's fleet be Tier 2. Emission Standards in EU. Emission laws in European countries are more robust and all encompassing.

The EU directive on the reduction of noxious emissions from vehicles, which was introduced inhas been revised continuously to accommodate recent developments in.

In response to increasingly stringent emissions standards, manufacturers continue to equip new cars with ever more sophisticated emission control systems. The enduring evolution of emissions reduction technology has occurred in three principle arenas: 1) engine design, 2) fuel related technologies, and 3) exhaust gas after-treatment (12).

The picture at the top of this post shows the status of emission control standards in the U.S. and Europe. Note that US standards are strict on Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM), while the EU is strict on Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Carbon Monoxide (CO).

US and European standards are not equivalent. Very little change from Euro 3 to 6 in exhaust emissions. Evaporative emissions go down for Euro 6 gasoline vehicles.

Diesel emissions might decline as WLTC and Real Driving Emissions (RDE) are incorporated into Euro 6. In-use NOx emissions and compliance evaluation for modern heavy-duty vehicles in Europe and the United States Comparison of real-world NOx emission from heavy-duty vehicles certified under U.S.

and European emission programs and analysis of the tools employed by each to determine in-use compliance. According to tests of on-road emissions conducted by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), Euro 6 vehicles emit at least 40% less nitrogen oxide (NOX) than Euro 3 vehicles.

Furthermore, the automotive industry has brought particle emissions down to near zero levels. Why do the U.S. and Europe have different safety standards. Every country feels like it knows the best way to protect motorists. (This piece initially aired on Ap on Morning Edition.).

For Europe's automakers, a great leap into the unknown began on New Year's Day, when European Union emissions standards that require a fleet. The EPA Automotive Trends Report summarizes information about new light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, fuel economy, technology data, and auto manufacturers' performance in meeting the agency’s GHG emissions standards.

On Mathe report was reissued with minor updates limited to the analysis of disaggregated off. Time is running out for carmakers in Europe.

Just six months out from stiff new emissions rules, the industry is facing up to an estimated 34. Europe's political response to global warming is widening differences between U.S. and European with China and its own battle against auto emissions as a wild card. Technology (Tuesdays. The European Union has mandated a 30% CO2 cut from trucks by and an interim 15% cut bywhile California has new requirements for up to 9% of trucks sold in to be zero-emission and incremental increases throughwhen diesel trucks will be banned.

As automakers are contemplating more diesel models for the U.S., some in Europe are backing away as EU authorities admit failures after two decades of trying to curb emissions from a technology. New European Fuel Economy Standards Wreak Havoc on Auto Sales Bottlenecks in production have caused Volkswagen and Audi sales to drop over 50 percent compared to   Our personal vehicles are a major cause of global warming.

Collectively, cars and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all US emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases for every gallon of gas. About five pounds comes from the extraction, production, and delivery of the fuel, while the great bulk of heat-trapping emissions—more than 19 pounds per.
