The Challenge Of Revised Euro 5, 6 Emission Standards
The world is changing and so as to be able to keep up with these changes, officials who do have a say on particular matters are making sure that they would be doing everything they can. One of the things that we are experiencing in our world is the high amount of pollution that seems to be unstoppable. However, pollution and smoke may not be entirely eliminated, but people in the automotive world are making sure that they would be able to at least lessen the amount of emissions that automobiles create.
Along this line, the European Parliament also wants to do its share on keeping the environment as clean as possible. Of course, there are certain things that such a form of government could do. Like perhaps ask the manufacturers of Ford auto parts or maybe even Saturn performance parts to actually minimize emissions and lessen the amount of waste that the factories or facilities are sending out to the environment. And on one point, the Parliament now has decided to change and revise their emission standards. Right now, they have already sent out information on the new Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission standards.
According though to motorists and also to car manufacturers, the newest set of emission standards have actually become quite challenging. You see, the European Parliament has already set that the new standards would be having rules on the limit values for elements like nitrogen oxide as well as on particulate matter. These can be found on both the proposals for Euro 5 and Euro 6. The new emission standards have already been affirmed by the government a couple of days earlier.
Ivan Hodac explains, “The European car industry will do its utmost to meet the extremely ambitious targets within the set time frame. What concerns us, is that the proposed limit values will not only be extremely difficult to meet, but will have a significant counter-productive effect on reducing CO2 emissions from passenger cars. They also pose a serious risk for the market of small diesel cars.” Hodac is the secretary-general for the European Automobile Manufacturers Association, or the ACEA.
