TRANSPORTATION, ENERGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT, THINGS ARE HEATING UP. IN: 1991 TAC ANNUAL CONFERENCE, PROCEEDINGS. VOLUME 6. SEPTEMBER 15-16, 1991, WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA

CONGRES ANNUEL 1991 DE L'ATC, COMPTE RENDU, VOLUME 6. SEPTEMBRE 15-16, 1991, WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA

The increasing demand for transportation results in increasing demand for energy and an increase in the production of emissions. In reviewing the 1985 Canadian sectoral emission contributions to the environment, it is found that emissions from road transportation contributed approximately 30 percent to volatile organic compounds (VOCs), 40 percent to oxides of nitrogen (NO sub x), 95 percent to carbon monoxide (CO), and 18 percent to carbon dioxide (CO sub 2). Clearly, these contributions are large and every effort should be made to reduce them (1,2). Some of the means which governments, transportation experts and industry can use to reduce the production of these emissions are technology, planning and lifestyle changes, standsrds, and taxation. The effectiveness and impact of these measures are discussed herein.
