NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND THEIR POTENTIAL TO REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF TRANSPORTATION

This paper is based on a study to provide the European Commission recommendations on the priorities for research and development in transport technologies and other related areas in technologies. The paper provides a synthesis of the findings of five studies and outlines the interactions between technology, transport, and environment. The first part describes the different types of environmental impact of transport, e.g., global and local pollution, quality of life aspects, and resource utilization. The authors argue that the environmental problem remains hitherto unresolved because very few of the technological possibilities are without some accompanying disadvantages.
