EU Technical Measures Project

EU Technical Measures


EU project on supporting technical measures to reduce emissions from existing heavy duty vehicles

Sadler Consultants  led a research project for the European Commission on how the EU can support the greater use of technical measures, such as after-treatments, fuels, oils and tyres, that can help reduce the emissions of particulates and NOx from existing heavy duty and captive fleets.
This project involved reviewing technical measures, providing data for the EU cost effectiveness model and developing policies to support them. The key policy is developing an EU-wide certification scheme for retrofits to assist LEZs and road tolling schemes, but also include EU guidance, informal/semi-formal city groupings, and changes to the state aid system.
This project is now completed, and the final report submitted to the Commission, and is available below:
