In early December 2012, Brussels, Belgium, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) Section 10 of the Commercial Vehicle executives meeting, held from heavy-duty commercial vehicle and engine manufacturers in Europe, North America, Japan and continue to appeal through global cooperation to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to discuss some of the heavy-duty engines and vehicles regulatory certification. Cooperation should be based on uniform fuel efficiency test method It is understood that this meeting by Duff (DAF) trucks president is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of ACEA Harrie Schippers presided. Wrap-up meeting, Schippers said: "on a global scale, commercial vehicle manufacturers to take decisive measures to overcome the short-term and long-term challenges. Driven by commercial interests, the industry has begun to research and development and production to improve vehicle fuel efficiency while reducing greenhouse gas products (GHG) emissions in the process of global cooperation, we first have to consider is the unified method of testing the fuel efficiency, as this will greatly reduce production costs, heavy commercial vehicle production industry will be the first to benefit from this Meanwhile, our users, and even the wider social dimension will be greatly benefited. "In addition, Schippers added that the meeting is equally concerned about the long-term issues, such as discussion to increase the flexibility of the vehicle design, which also contribute to road freight industry to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and harmful gases. "In these important areas of technology research, the high specification meeting reaffirmed the importance of international cooperation in the commercial vehicle industry."
Schippers said in conclusion. Global cooperation consensus Schippers also make the evaluation of the first nine meetings, he said: "Through the first nine meetings, some countries have been advancing the worldwide adoption of the heavy-duty commercial vehicle emissions certification; unified norms and regulations of automotive diesel The work has been further developed; been carried out through global cooperation to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions management requirements. the participating industry leader also the reality on the following points need to reach a consensus: adhere to a global partnership to expand the heavy commercial vehicle emissions certification program range of applications; emphasized the global vehicle detection methods, the importance of diesel fuel specifications; further development and the development of global harmonization of vehicle fuel efficiency and to promote the global harmonization of heavy-duty hybrid commercial vehicle certification program. According to reports, the meeting was attended by companies that have been or are about to make joint efforts with the respective countries, to accelerate the adoption of heavy commercial vehicles emissions certification program, while supporting the United Nations to establish a unified global heavy-duty hybrid commercial vehicle certification program. The participants reiterated that they will continue to work with the United Nations to discuss the global development of the diesel fuel specifications, and further stressed: very necessary for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and to establish a global test program in order to more accurately assess the level of carbon dioxide emissions for commercial vehicles, and the need for coordinated The global action. Participants also intended to set up a joint expert group dedicated to Research and greenhouse gas emissions related to the three major issues: the engine fuel map diagram, the air resistance of the vehicle as well as the duty cycle, the driver model. Finally, we carried out by the industry and government to promote global harmonization of multi-national and multi-regional cooperation given unanimously affirmed that this will eventually play a significant role in the improvement of the user, the environment and the commercial vehicle industry.
