Maritime transport is a major source of emissions of harmful air pollutants and carbon dioxide. In a new project, a research team from the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) and the University of Gothenburg has received SEK 6.4 million to analyse policy instruments and...
Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles provide substantial environmental advantages compared with comparable Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles. Two Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles energy consumption, CO2-emission and locally polluting emissions were tested in VTT’s emission laboratory in Finland, at +23°C and...
A new study from the National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) demonstrates that older types of trains produce more particulate emissions in railroad tunnels than do newer ones. Dust binding, improved paving, and reduced studded tyre use could reduce coarse particle levels in road...
Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen are all working strategically with pedestrian prioritising and urban life. Car free city centres are high on the political agenda in many Nordic cities and in a range of European countries. New policy measures are applied and in many cases, significant...
Each year the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) organizes the Nordic region’s largest annual conference for the transport sector. For three years running there has been a session on Transportforum dealing with the development of new infrastructure for the fossil-free...
It is hardly a secret that aviation must reduce its negative impact on the climate. This will require either less air travel or a breakthrough in sustainable aviation fuels. Emissions per flight are decreasing, thanks to more efficient engines, lighter aircraft, more seats per aircraft, and...
