A new publication authored by Y. Chen & J. Borken-Kleefeld is now available on ERMES website:
Real-driving emissions from cars and light commercial vehicles – Results from 13 years remote sensing at Zurich/CH.
More than a third of Europe’s population is exposed to excessive levels of air pollution, in particular along busy roads. The EU has responded by tightening exhaust emission standards for vehicles, among others. Our research however finds that this has only partially been effective: Today’s diesel cars emit even more NOx than the models 20 years ago!
