Today day exist crowd of associations and agencies that focus their efforts by studying the impact that have our actions on the environment. One of these agencies is the Transport & Environment and in another study returns to the fray against the automobile sector. In this case has evaluated how of pollutants are the brands that sell their cars diesel in the Union European.
I’ve explained it here several times and I will repeat it again. Not pollute less it brand that less particles of CO2 or NOx emits to the atmosphere, but which more works to minimize the impact that cause their cars from before birth until just forgotten in a Center authorized of treatment of vehicles. However this type of impacts medium environmental seems that is forgotten at the time of performing these studies.
A few days ago we brought you the news of the European environmental agency which according to your measurements vehicles diesel contaminated up to three times more on open road than it initially had made us believe. Thanks to this study I could reach the conclusion that vehicles driven by this type of mechanical are not cleaner if they circulate outside of the congested cities.
However the study carried out by the Transport & Environment leaves us more cold still. According to their data all brands that sell vehicles with mechanical diesel in Europe are more polluting than Volkswagen. In this study we have analyzed 230 models equipped with diesel engines and the results thrown less polluting in Europe is Volkswagen with their Euro 6 engines.
To carry to out this study them researchers of the Agency have taken as data of reference several studies made by the Governments of United Kingdom, France and Germany. In addition to adjust the sample to the current reality also have taken data from several databases open.
In this study not be Specifies whether to make the report researchers have used data rectified Volkswagen engines or not by what we can not rule out that the results could be altered. In this study only is speaks of Europe, but must remember that them vehicles of Volkswagen in us are them more pollutants since only meet the standard Euro 5 and its engines were spoofed.
As a conclusion of this study we can say that all brands of cars that sell diesel models pollute more than what the Euro 6 stipulates (nothing new under the Sun). According to Transport & Environment the brands more pollutants are Fiat and Suzuki surpassing up to 15 times the NOx allowed. In second place would go Renault and Nissan with up to 14 times more and finally would be Opel–Vauxhall with 10 times more.
If take as certain them conclusions of the study them vehicles diesel of the Group Volkswagen are that less particles of NOx emit to the atmosphere since only duplicate them levels allowed, being very below the rest of brands rival.
And now I say one thing and without sounding wrong meter. Not you seem rare these conclusions and the information that brings this study? I only will that not be nothing…
