Euro VI vs. Transport Sector, an Environmental and Climate Success or Not?
The environmental and health impact of individual vehicles/vessels are regulated through various legal acts by the European Commission. For energy efficiency or emissions of carbon dioxide, thus the climate impact the situation is different especially if all modes of transport is included. With the Euro VI regulations the shortcomings of previous emission stages, i.e. real driving emissions, seems to have been solved making road transport a clean choice of transport for the first time. The traditional green modes of transport like diesel rail and inland waterway vessels lag behind, both in stringency and real world emissions but are energy efficient.
