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 regulated in the majority of automotive markets around the world, and evaporative emission control (EVAP) systems have become commonplace in all new vehicles.
