EU proposes reduced emissions limits for heavy-duty vehicles

  • 31-Mar-2008 07:57 EDT

The European Union recently published a draft regulation containing proposed emissions limits for heavy-duty vehicles, known as Euro VI. According to InterRegs, the requirements will be applicable to all goods vehicles with a GVW exceeding 3500 kg and to all passenger vehicles with more than nine seats. Compared to the Euro V requirements, this draft regulation proposes an 80% reduction in the limit for NOx emissions and a 66% reduction in the limit for particulate matter. The emissions limits are intended to be roughly equivalent to U.S. 2010 heavy-duty emissions requirements. It is proposed that compliance be mandatory from April 1, 2013, for new types of vehicle and from October 1, 2014, for all new vehicles.
