Commissioned by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water management of The Netherlands, TNO Sustainable Transport and Logistics regularly performs measurements on heavy-duty vehicles to determine the in-service performance and durability of the tail-pipe emissions under representative driving conditions. A Euro VI heavy-duty N2 class truck, the...

Background. Epidemiological evidence on the association between ambient air pollution and brain tumor risk is sparse and inconsistent. Methods. In 12 cohorts from 6 European countries, individual estimates of annual mean air pollution levels at the baseline residence were estimated by standardized land-use regression models developed within the...

Exposure to crystalline silica (quartz) has been implicated as a potential cause of the high lung cancer rates in the neighbouring counties of Xuanwei and Fuyuan, China, where the domestic combustion of locally sourced “smoky” coal (a bituminous coal) is responsible for some of the highest lung cancer rates in the nation, irrespective of gender...

Dit rapport beschrijft de resultaten van metingen aan de praktijkemissies van Euro 5 en Euro 6/VI dieselbestelauto’s en busjes voor personenvervoer. Praktijkemissies zijn emissies zoals deze optreden, rijdend met het voertuig, op de openbare weg. Het project waarbinnen deze metingen zijn verricht wordt door TNO uitgevoerd in opdracht van het...

Begin 2017 kwam via de media naar voren dat manipulatie plaatsvindt van systemen die op vrachtwagens zitten om de schadelijke uitlaatgasemissies terug te dringen. Het manipuleren houdt in dat in een vrachtwagen een kastje wordt ingebouwd of de motorsoftware wordt aangepast zodat het emissiebeheersingssysteem wordt uitgeschakeld. Het uitschakelen...

In the framework of the in-service testing programme of trucks and buses, carried out by TNO for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, an on-road emissions testing programme was conducted to determine the criteria pollutants, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and fuel consumption of two modern Euro VI trucks running on LNG (liquefied...

We evaluate the capability of the global atmospheric transport model TM5 to simulate the boundary layer dynamics and associated variability of trace gases close to the surface, using radon (222Rn). Focusing on the European scale, we compare the boundary layer height (BLH) in the TM5 model with observations from the National Oceanic and...

In opdracht van het Ministerie van Infrastructuur en Milieu voert TNO het steekproefcontroleprogramma voor vrachtwagens en bussen uit. In dit programma meet TNO, op regelmatige basis, de uitlaatgasemissies van deze voertuigen om te onderzoeken hoe schoon ze in de praktijk zijn en of zij aan de Europese normen voldoen. In dit rapport wordt...

Moderne zware Euro VI vrachtwagens stoten in de praktijk gemiddeld een factor 10 minder stikstofoxiden (NOx) uit dan eerdere generaties Euro IV en Euro V vrachtwagens. De emissies van Euro 6 dieselpersonen- en bestelwagens laten echter een heel ander beeld zien. Ondanks voortdurende aanscherping van Europese emissielimieten blijft namelijk de...

In real-world conditions, modern Euro VI heavy-duty vehicles produce an average of ten times less nitrogen oxide (NOx)emissions than previous generations of Euro IV and Euro V heavy-duty vehicles. However, Euro 6 passenger cars and light commercial vehicles present an entirely different picture since, despite a continual tightening of European...
