How we can compare road testing and lab tests for vehicle emissions or calculate if a biofuel is 'greener' than petrol?
The JRC's Vehicle Emissions Laboratory based in Ispra comprises major testing facilities capable of conducting emissions tests on on-road vehicles and non-road machines.
Since 2004 VELA is complemented by tests conducted on the road using Portable Emissions Measurement Systems installed on board of a variety of vehicles, ranging from passenger cars to large heavy-duty engines. Research findings have provided scientific support for the development of new elements in EU Directives.
