Diesel cars dirtier than buses

Diesel cars dirtier than buses

While we’ve long recognised the environmental benefits of transporting multiple passengers by bus rather than in private cars, it looks like buses are actually more environmentally friendly and less polluting than we realised.

A new report from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) has found that diesel engines emit significantly more toxic pollutants in the form of nitrogen oxide (NOx) than new buses and lorries. According to the study, there are three new requirements for heavy duty vehicles under the Euro VI standards that do not yet apply to cars, including mobile testing devices to measure emissions in real world conditions.

In response to these requirements, larger vehicles are now being fitted with technology to reduce levels of emissions, leaving them safer for the atmosphere than the average family diesel.
