This white paper will review the key literature and estimates, attempt to understand the reason for differences and resolve these, undertake sensitivity analysis and a “final” robust analysis with conclusions about the best applications of BETs and where they may be very challenged to replace diesels.
This presentation provided an overview of findings from a white paper from the National Center for Sustainable Transportation that examines the feasibility of achieving the target of an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050 from freight transport systems, with a focus on U.S. trucking.
This policy brief summarizes research that suggests that the combination of significantly improved vehicle efficiency coupled with very low-carbon fuels can help the trucking sector reach greenhouse gas targets.
The research team will employ a case study analysis approach to assess the costs and benefits of plug-in electric vehicle conversion for an array of commercial fleets operated in the Atlanta metro area.
This project examines intelligent traffic control strategies, which will have positive impact on the environment by reducing fuel consumption and pollution levels in areas where the truck volume is relatively high.
This study demonstrates a model framework that combines a microscopic traffic simulation with emissions and microscale dispersion models to quantify the potential impacts of truck-only lanes on fuel consumption, emissions, and near-road pollutant concentrations.
Researchers assessed the engine-out emissions of an ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and a neat hydrogenated vegetable oil (HVO) from a light-duty diesel truck equipped with common rail direct injection.
