The impact of vehicle and fuel standards on premature mortality and emissions

The impact of vehicle and fuel standards on premature mortality and emissions

Summary Evaluates worldwide historical and potential impacts of fuel quality and vehicle emission standards, presents a global policy roadmap through 2030, and quantifies the benefits to public health and the climate. Technology-forcing regulations in the United States, European Union, and Japan have resulted in highly effective controls of tailpipe emissions. Advanced aftertreatment technology and engine...
Contaminantes Climáticos de Vida Corta: una oportunidad para reducir emisiones

Contaminantes Climáticos de Vida Corta: una oportunidad para reducir emisiones

Los Contaminantes Climáticos de Vida Corta (CCVC) son agentes contribuyentes al calentamiento global que tienen una vida útil relativamente breve en la atmósfera (entre pocos días a unas pocas décadas), a diferencia del CO2, que permanece en la atmósfera durante siglos o milenios después de emitido. Los CCVC afectan gravemente la salud humana y de...

Primer on Hydrofluorocarbons

Primer on Hydrofluorocarbons

La acción rápida en el marco del Protocolo de Montreal puede limitar el crecimiento de los HFC, prevenir hasta 100 millones de toneladas de emisiones de CO2-eq en 2050, y evitar hasta 0,5 C º de calentamiento para el año 2100. Los hidrofluorocarbonos (HFCs) son los gases de efecto invernadero de más rápido crecimiento en...
