Development of the new vehicle emission standard Euro 7/VIIDaniele D'Onofrio
Yesterday, Wednesday 16 September 2020, CITA hosted a webinar titled: “Development of the new vehicle emission standard Euro 7/VII“. Reserved to CITA members and key stakeholders, the event saw the participation of more than 60 attendees from all around the world.
Together with Mr. G. Petelet, Business Developer at CAPELEC, we discussed the development of the new European vehicle emissions standard – Euro 7/VII – and what kind of scenario will be defined with this new regulation.
Whereas the latest EU developments in vehicle emissions have been an outstanding step forward towards a clean fleet, there is still a huge potential to improve the impact that vehicles have on air quality. The tampering of the emissions control system is jeopardising efforts to have clean combustion engines and cybersecurity will be without doubt an issue in the coming years. The solution to the new challenges requires close cooperation between all the stakeholders and makes it essential to define an impartial and transparent framework to guarantee that vehicles arriving in the fleet are clean and their features will reasonably last as long as they are used.
