European Programmes on Emissions, Fuels and Engine Technologies (EPEFE) - Vehicle/Engine Technology 961067
The European Programme on EMISSIONS, FUELS and ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES (EPEFE) was conceived to investigate the impact on emissions of changing fuel composition for the use in future engines/vehicles meeting at least the 1996 European Emission Limits.
Participating members of the European car constructors association, ACEA provided the largest vehicle/engine fleet ever tested in an European emissions programme. The most important criteria was to provide vehicles which would span the emission range within the new EC limits to ensure that representative emissions of the future car parc are provided for use in the Auto Oil Air Quality model.
In this paper the broad range of 16 gasoline- and 19 diesel vehicles as well as five heavy duty engines their technology and their exhaust emission control devices are introduced and discussed.
