When French investigators swooped on Renault to seize computers, it was yet another stark illustration of the systemic failure of car testing in Europe. Their investigation is linked to the Volkswagen emissions scandal, where national testing authorities failed to detect or even investigate the cheating – despite being made aware of the exceptionally high on-road emissions.

This morning, a colleague made me aware of a trend happening among owners of large pick-up trucks in the United States. The basic idea is that as a protest against the Obama administration's attempt at legislating via the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act, a number of pick-up truck owners have modified their vehicles to...

While much of the focus in the automotive industry is on reducing exhaust emissions to meet carbon reduction targets, there is another cause of emissions which must not be overlooked. The fuel in a vehicle’s tank and fuel lines is subject to evaporation over time, releasing volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere. These emissions are now... Full Content »

According to a survey we have recently conducted, the optimization of aftertreatment systems is a key challenge in regard to upcoming Real Driving Emissions (RDE) regulations. Why is RDE such a challenge for the existing aftertreatment technology?


Before the introduction of RDE, the emission compliance in Europe is focusing on the NEDC. This... Full Content »

Ever since the work carried out by people such as Robert C. Stempel in the 1970’s, automotive catalytic convertors have used precious metals such as platinum, palladium and rhodium to promote the reaction of exhaust gases; by so doing converting nitrous oxides, carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons into nitrogen gas, carbon dioxide and...
