TUD COST Action 346
Energy and fuel consumption from heavy duty vehicles

The primary objective of the Action was to develop an improved methodology for estimating pollutant emissions and fuel consumption from commercial road transport operated with Heavy Duty Vehicles in Europe.

Motivation of setting up this Action was the poor database on emissions for particular types and engines of heavy duty vehicles.

Action results were presented at the 14th Transport & Air Pollution 05 conference in Graz, which provided solid bases for information exchange on a high scientific level, being attended by some 175 participants from 27 countries, representing research and scientific institutions, industry and governments.

COST 346 produced the emission models, which allow to calculate emission and fuel consumption indicators for vehicle fleet as well for individual vehicles taking into account the driving performances and conditions, vehicle age and other factors.

Findings of this Action were also compared with and incorporated into deliverables other EU research projects dealing with transport emissions.
