AN INTEGRATED MODELING SYSTEM FOR THE ESTIMATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE EMISSIONS

This paper provides a summary of completed and ongoing research and activities in the field of motor vehicle emission modeling in Europe. These activities have led to the development of a system of methods and corresponding computer models that address issues related to motor vehicle emissions that are of interest to policymakers, institutions, and automotive and oil industries. The Coordination of Information on Air Emissions/Computer Program to Calculate Emissions from Road Traffic (CORINAIR/COPERT) methodology for the estimation of emissions from road vehicles is presented and compared with other models. A COPERT-based approach for microscale traffic emission estimation, with direct application in regional and urban emission inventories is outlined, and relevant case studies are briefly discussed. Other models are also described. Special emphasis is given to modeling the deterioration of in-use vehicles. Major areas of further study in the field of vehicle emissions in Europe are indicated.
